Last week was Teacher Appreciation Week, but it’s never too late to thank a special teacher. Whether you have a teacher of your own, a teacher for your children or a teacher as a friend, Kimberly Schlegel Whitman has tips on composing a note to them.

Celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week with Kimberly Schlegel Whitman:

  • Instead of a generic Thank You note, write out an example or a story of a way that you know the teacher has made an impact in your life, your child’s life or the life of their students.
  • Have your kids write their own notes to their teachers.  You could start a few sentences for them and ask them to fill in the blanks (ex. I learned ………. from you!, Thank you for…….., ) or they could draw a picture or make a craft for them.
  • Work together as a class to present a full bouquet of flowers to your teacher.  Ask each child to bring any flower they choose to class and put them all together in a vase to present a bouquet that represents the students.
