Teachers play a big role in shaping the minds of your children.
They inspire, motivate, and encourage students to think out of the box, to learn what’s right from wrong, to speak their minds, and to use what they learn in school to help change their lives and the lives of others.
Teachers also play the role of parents to the students that belong to their classrooms.
They get to spend a lot of time with them, so they are able to talk to them and know what’s on their minds.
They can greatly influence and motivate, so it’s important that teachers and the student’s’ parents have a good relationship and an open line of communication.
Thanking your children’s teachers is a good exercise in fostering a healthy and honest relationship.
They are taking care of your children in the classroom, and they are teaching them things that they need to survive in the real world.
They have such a huge responsibility yet get so little in return.
A little appreciation and recognition can definitely go a long way.
Witty Thank You Messages for Teachers from Parents
Great teachers are very hard to come by.
There are plenty of teachers around, but not all of them are patient, kind, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, or inspiring.
When you do find one that your children adore and who care for them like their own, take care of them and build a good relationship with them.
Here are some examples of thank you messages for teachers from parents that can make them feel warm and fuzzy all over.
Teachers do very important work, so it’s time to tell them just how much you appreciate them for the great work they do with your children.
It’s very easy to take what you do for granted. You can share the wisest piece of advice to the class and you wouldn’t know if anyone bothered to take note of it. You’re quick to spot bad behavior, but your students don’t know the level of patience required not to call out everybody else. Your students think it’s so easy to come to class and teach from a lesson plan. But what they don’t realize is that you come to school each day with the hope of making a positive impact in their lives. Thank you for being there for our kids through the easy and the difficult parts. You truly have my respect and admiration.
Thank you for giving our kids the advice that they need to make good decisions, for teaching the younger generation how they can shape the future, for showing the lost kids that there’s a bright future ahead of them, for making daily sacrifices for the good of the kids, for being committed to such a selfless profession, for helping parents like me breathe easier, and for being the best teacher any student could ever have. Thank you ever so much!
Great teachers are not the ones with the expensive degrees and fancy qualifications. They are the teachers who make the most of what they’ve got. They love with all their hearts, and they have the biggest desires to make the happiest and most successful students. They want to make the world a better place, one student at a time. Thank you for being such a great teacher to my child. My wish is that he grows up to have the same amount of passion and commitment to something, and contribute to making this world so much better.
To the rest of the school you may just be a teacher, but to our child you are a hero! Thank you for your love and concern for our child, and for making each day a fun day of learning and playing. He really looks forward to coming to school because of you, and that really means a lot to us. All our love and gratitude to you.
Great thinkers, leaders, influencers, and inventors are not born. They are taught, motivated, inspired, and guided to do great things by brilliant teachers like you. Thank you for being such a wonderful influence on our child, and we hope that he will grow up to be someone successful like the heroes that he looks up to.
Examples of Warm Thank You Messages for Teachers from Parents
When it comes to thanking your children’s teachers, it’s best to keep your Thank You message short, honest, but sweet.
Teachers deserve all the gratitude and recognition in the world for working in an oftentimes thankless job.
They work selflessly and patiently with students and help shape their minds. For this, teachers deserve that heartfelt thank you message from you.
Beyond the books and the four walls of the classroom, there are so many things to teach and so many things to learn. You are their teacher, but you are also their friend, guardian, and protector. I feel reassured that when I drop off my kids at school every morning, they are safe and protected inside your classrooms. You are a teacher who does not only rely on your mind but also on your heart. For this, I know that my child is in good hands. Thank you very much for all that you do. Please know that we appreciate you.
Thank you for giving our little children the chance to dream big dreams. As young as they are now, you encourage them to explore, learn, and discover so much about the world. This is great training for them because this cultivates the desire to get started on their dreams and discover what they want to do when they’re older. There are no words that can express my gratitude for you because you empower my child to chase their dreams. You teach them not to get scared, and try new things, and get out of their comfort zones. You help me help them become the person that they’re meant to be. For that, I will be forever grateful.
Your words are the fuel to our child’s dreams, and your guidance is the motivation that our children need to pursue their dreams. Every word you say and every action you take has the power to change our children’s lives. Thank you for taking care of our children and giving them the encouragement that they need to dream bigger and do more. We wouldn’t be able to do it on our own.
My child has blossomed into a real delightful little girl because of your guidance and encouragement. Her face lights up when it’s time to drop her off at school, and she only has the best kinds of stories whenever it’s time to go home. She likes to learn new things, and she loves talking to us adults about them. This is largely due to your work with her, and how you encouraged her to speak her mind and stay curious. Thank you for not giving up on her. You truly are the best thing that happened to her!
Our child’s favorite place used to be her little playground at the back of the house. Now her favorite place is your classroom, and her favorite people are you and her classmates. I’m not even jealous! I know that you are taking good care of her, and you are guiding her to be a good, caring, and intelligent girl. Thank you for always making sure that she’s okay and happy. It’s great teachers like you that leave a footprint in their hearts forever.
Examples of Affectionate Thank You Messages for Teachers from Parents
Teachers are considered your child’s second parents. They take care of them when they are at school, and they guide and inspire them to learn more and be more. Their dedication to their job is admirable, and they always do it without waiting for recognition or reward.
For this reason, you should give your child’s teacher a thank you message for all their hard work and commitment to the profession.
I can rest easy knowing that my child is at school, learning from a brilliant teacher like you, surrounded by happy and excited kids. It’s nice to know that our children are shielded from the harsh realities of life while learning in fun and play. With wonderful teachers like you, I am reassured that our children are protected and taken care of. Thank you for being a mom to our children while they are home away from home. Our hearts are forever grateful.
The biggest and best compliment that any teacher can have is a student coming home and telling their mom and dad that they had the best day at school. My daughter comes home every day and tells that to me each time. Thank you for making school the highlight of her day. Thank you for making her excited to go to school every morning, and so sad to leave in the afternoon. Thank you for bringing out the best in her!
No matter how hard we try to shape our children’s values, they will eventually grow up to be people whose views and personalities are shaped by their teachers. I have no fear because you are one of the best teachers she has ever had. She always speaks highly of you, and she really respects and admires you. Please don’t stop guiding her and showing her how to be a good person. You just don’t know how much it means to us.
More than putting my child to a good school, I was more concerned with putting my child in the hands of a strong but loving, smart and sensitive, and fun and inspiring teacher like you. I’m so glad that we found you and that my child belongs to your class. For the few hours each day that I know my child is in your classroom, I can rest easy and stop worrying about her. Thanks for being so sweet and patient to my child, and for being kind and supportive to us parents. I really do appreciate it.
As parents, there’s nothing that we wouldn’t do for our children. We will give everything that we can provide them at home, and we hope that they will also get the same when they’re at school. We have nothing to worry about because we know that our child will only get the best in your classroom from a great teacher like you. Thank you for taking care of our children and giving us parents one less thing to worry about. We appreciate what you do, and we thank you for helping in raising our children, one lesson at a time.

I know that your job is never easy. I know that it can be exhausting and stressful sometimes. But thank you so much for being the person who listens to my child’s silly stories, who cheers him on whenever he does a great job, who comforts him when he has a booboo, who makes him smile when he’s feeling sad, and who makes him look forward to waking up in the morning and get ready for school. Thank you for teaching my child so much every day!

Although you are not their parent, I can feel your genuine concern, love, and pride for your students. You are there for them every step of the way.

You have taught our children so much the past few years. They have made tremendous improvement in their academics and in their social interaction. Thank you for being so patient and dedicated. For every kindness and generosity that you have showed our children, a very big thank you!
Writing the perfect Thank You message for teachers need not be a chore.
All you need to do is to brainstorm words that you would like to use that will help you express your thoughts and emotions most effectively.
Think of the memories that you have of this teacher that prove just how great and effective they are at what they do.
Use some nice stationery or writing paper, and use your own handwriting to make it more personal.
Address the teacher just like how the students address her.
There’s no need to use overly flowery or colorful language, or even include quotes and lines from poems. Just say what you want to say and thank them!
Remember to keep it warm and affectionate but still professional. Let them know that you appreciate all the work that they do as teachers, and that you want to thank them for taking such good care of your child.
State your support or confidence in them, and share a short but sweet story about the changes that you noticed in your child ever since they became their teacher.
When you speak from the heart, the words will just flow and the emotions will be clear. You don’t need to say a lot for someone to feel how thankful or grateful you are.
Just a few simple but effective words should do the trick. 😉
