What are some nice things to say to your teacher?

Teachers shape the minds of our children and our future. There really are no words to express gratitude for all they do.

When thinking about the best way to thank a teacher, think about what he or she did that was exceptional or above the call of duty. Also think about how he or she changed you personally; the way you thought about things, the way you saw yourself and the world in general.

Here are some words and phrases to get you started:

• You gave me strength.

• I was glad you were my teacher (or child’s teacher).

• Thank you for giving me courage.

• You made me a better person.

• I’ll never forget you.

• You gave me confidence in myself. (or my son or daughter)

• Thank you for your patience.

• You helped me see what I could be.

• You are the best teacher ever!
