12 great teacher appreciation ideas
May 7th is Teacher Appreciation Day. So this week, we’re putting some elbow grease into ways to say thank you.
I don’t know about you, but I thank my lucky stars for the teachers in my boys’ lives.
My three-year-old has had the good fortune of having the world’s most amazing preschool teacher two years in a row. We moms marvel at her ability to juggle three boys of her own AND always make you feel as though your child is the center of her universe. We’ve also had some developmental concerns thrown into the mix this year, and words cannot adequately express our gratitude for the compassion and guidance she has shown us as we navigate those waters.
My first grader has also won the teacher lottery two years in a row. I thought it would be hard to beat his kindergarten teacher – but his first grade teacher is amazingly talented, warm, funny, and smart. She has stoked his innate curiosity, helped him become a great reader, and pushed him to improve his writing. Ask him if he loves school and the answer is always a big Y-E-S!
We can’t wait to let them know how much we appreciate everything they do. If you’re looking for some nice options that won’t break the bank, I’ve rounded up 12 sweet options here.

Adding a bit of flair to a pens set is easy and so lovely! You could have each member of the class create some special artwork and then use that as the background. Idea and image via Chocolate on My Cranium.[/caption]
