Poems for/about Teachers

Public tributes through PTA
• Host a special breakfast or lunch for your school’s teachers and staff. If space allows, invite
parents, school board members, the district superintendent, district personnel, and prominent
community leaders to join you at the event in showing appreciation for teachers.
• Create a giant teacher thank-you card for display in the school community. Place markers by
the card so community members can add their words of thanks.
• Start a “teacher feature” on a school or library bulletin board. Each week or month, profile a
different teacher. Include quotes by and about the teacher, as well as the teacher’s picture,
background, hobbies, and philosophy of education. Alternatively, use the school or PTA
newsletter to publish interviews with teachers and stories about teachers’ accomplishments.
Consider having students conduct the interviews and write the stories. Publish stories
throughout the year.
• Plant trees or flowers in public areas or on school grounds in honor of teachers.
• Ask each teacher what his or her favorite book is and buy a copy for or have a copy donated
to the school library. Include in each book a bookplate with the name of the teacher who
chose the book.
• Present certificates of appreciation to all teachers, as well as to substitute teachers, aides, and
other support staff.
• Take out an ad in the local newspaper to thank the teachers in your school or district.
Expressions of gratitude
• Put flowers, snacks, and gourmet coffees and teas in the teachers’ lounge during Teacher
Appreciation Week. Place small gifts in each staff person’s mailbox. (For gift ideas, visit the
PTA Store.)
• Ask teachers to fill out a survey regarding their favorite books, colors, flowers, restaurants,
coffee shops, etc. Use that knowledge when giving gifts. For example, present each teacher
with his or her favorite book, signed by each of his or her students; give each teacher a small
bouquet of his or her favorite flower.
• Coordinate a car wash and invite the school staff and teachers to get their vehicles washed
for free.
• Establish a fund to enable teachers to take part in lectures and workshops at local colleges or
to attend special trainings or conferences.
• Have the students in each class create their own posters thanking their teacher. Take a picture of each student holding his or her sign. Then, put together small photo albums of the thankyou messages for the teacher
