20 Best Examples for a Thank You Note to Teacher

A thank you note to teacher at the end of the semester/year is a chance for parents and children to express their gratitude for what the teacher has done that has impacted them.

A teacher spends an inordinate amount of time with their class and has a profound influence on them, not only imparting knowledge but wisdom and morality as well.

When writing a thank you note to teacher, keep it short and sweet, but make your gratitude known with sincerity. A heartfelt note means a great deal to a teacher and validates their efforts in class to change and influence the lives of their students.

02“We realize that teaching is a thankless job, but you pour your heart and soul into it. Your passion is inspiring to us as parents. Don’t think that because you don’t hear the words ‘thank you’ every day, that we are not grateful.”


03“Being a teacher can’t be easy. It takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice. You doubtlessly spend a lot of time worrying about the students in your class at the expense of your personal time. We thank you sincerely for caring so much.”


04“The time you spent during and after class giving our child individual attention to make sure he/she understands goes above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you for your patience, and for being gentle with him/her when it took longer to grasp the concepts.”


05“Our respect and admiration for you as a teacher cannot be expressed in words. You make an impact on the lives of the students in your class, and they will remember you for many years to come. Thank you for being the positive change in their lives.”

09“We wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you have done teaching our child. We’re aware that he/she is not always easy to deal with, but your patience and firmness have made a huge difference and we thank you.”
