Teacher Appreciation Free Printables ~ 8x10" print, note cards, and gift tags | FiveHeartHome.comThe school year is almost over, y'all. How the heck did that happen?! I think it's hitting me harder than usual because my oldest child is wrapping up first grade, and that's the grade I always taught as a teacher. It's a little surreal to think that I have a kiddo old enough to be graduating first grade, because that means next year? Second grade. And how am I ever going to help him with his homework then? Sorry, kid...you are about to exceed my store of elementary school knowledge. Guess you're on your own now.

Seriously, though, let's talk teachers for a minute here. Because they are AWESOME. And I'm not just saying that because I was one and I'm still good friends with a bunch of them. I'm saying that because it's true. The perspective of having been a teacher before I was a parent helps me to fully grasp just how much of their hearts and souls teachers pour into our children. That's right...our children, with whom they spend more waking hours each week than we, their parents, do. In the words of a certain Ms. Houston, I believe the children are our future...teach them well and let them lead the way. Quite simply, without good, quality teachers, we as a society are in big, fat trouble.

It's so important to show your teachers how much you appreciate them, people! I know that not everyone has it in their budgets to splurge on expensive thank you gifts. And you know what? Teachers don't expect nice, fancy presents. They are okay with the fact that they work for beans.

However, guess what teachers do like? To feel appreciated for all of the time and effort and love they dedicate to their students. And while a gift card to their favorite store or restaurant would certainly not be turned down, a heartfelt note of thanks from a parent and/or student who genuinely appreciate them for the hard, joyous, stressful, fun, frustrating, passionate job they do is something that they will file away and keep forever. I still have some notes like that from my teaching years, and I can remember who wrote them and even what the note card or stationery looked like. Really. A meaningful thank you note can be that powerful.

Teacher Appreciation Free Printables ~ 8x10" print, note cards, and gift tags | FiveHeartHome.comSo with that in mind, I created a printable featuring a teacher quote to which I think most educators can relate. I actually first came across this quote on a greeting card back when I was a student teacher, and it perfectly summarized all of my enthusiasm for my new profession. When my student teaching semester was over, I decided to create a hand-lettered print of this quote and frame it as a gift to my supervising teacher. But I always held on to the original greeting card...and now you can preserve it for eternity as well with this free 8x10" printable! Frame it for the favorite teacher(s) in your life.

I can envision one of these cute tags affixed to a Mason jar full of granola (see below), candied nuts, trail mix, chocolates, or candy. One of these tags would also be perfect tied around a loaf of homemade bread or adorning a cellophane bag of muffins or cookies. But if you don't have time to whip up a homemade treat from the kitchen, these tags would work equally well as labels for store bought presents, should you feel so inclined.

Teacher Appreciation Free Printables ~ 8x10" print, note cards, and gift tags | FiveHeartHome.comI decided to also add this quote to a sheet of note cards. You can print off a whole set of these note cards (8 or 12 total), cut them apart and fold, tie them up with some pretty string and coordinating envelopes, and give them as a teacher gift any time of year, whether it's the first day of school, teacher appreciation week, or the last week of school.

Set aside 10 minutes or so to compose a sincere note of teacher appreciation, using one of these note cards as the perfect canvas. At the end of the day, that's going to make your teacher feel more valued than just about anything else. Although if you decide to also slide a gift card inside your heartfelt thank you note? Rock. On. 😉

  1. Thank you so much. I just saved this to print for our granddaughter. She is a second year teacher. This year she has first grade in a school where about 95% of the students qualify for breakfast and lunch programs - it is a challenging position but she loves working with the students.

    1. I'm so glad that you're going to be able to share this with your granddaughter, Dorothy! She sounds like a very special lady who is putting her heart into a job where she is very much needed.

  2. I have been searching for days for the perfect "Thank You" gift for my host teacher since she has allowed me to student teach in her classroom as I work towards getting my teaching licensure.

    1. You're so welcome, Langdon! That sounds like a perfect gift for your host teacher, and that's pretty much how I used this quote back when I first discovered it as a student teacher looking for a gift for my supervising teacher. 🙂 Hope she loves your gift, and thanks for taking the time to share your story. Happy December!

  3. I just found your blog and LOVE it so far! This teacher note is darling! Being a teacher myself, I appreciate parents like you.

You're a great mom, even on those days you feel like you're not measuring up 🙂

    1. You are too sweet, Holly...I'm glad you found the blog and that you like what you've seen so far. 🙂 And thank you for doing the most important job there is!
