Thank You, Teacher: 5 Ways to Express Gratitude for Teachers From Educator Genein Letford

Genein Letford is a national speaker, life and finance coach, and award-winning educator. Here are her five ways to show gratitude to your child's teacher:

  • Support Their Projects: Support a teacher with things they actually need! If your child's teacher has a project on DonorsChoose, give to that project. If not, find a project from your hometown or a project in a subject area in which you work in.
  • Coffee or Tea: Teaching is a work of heart, but it's also hard work! A little caffeine pick me up will always be appreciated so a gift card to a coffee establishment will never go to waste.
  • Smell Good Bundle: Compiling her favorite scents from a lotion store will put a smile on her face. Get some hints to find out their favorite scents!
  • Practical Creations: Teachers can only eat so much candy, sweets or put flowers into a vase. Why not think about what teachers use on a day-to-day basis and create a "supplies" cake creation. Since many teachers spend their own money on supplies, this will certainly take some pressure off their wallets.
  • Creative and Unique Poetry or Letters: Teachers hear the ubiquitous, "Thank you for being my teacher!" which is nice. but when you take the time to specifically express the teacher's personal impact is gold.
