Thanking your teacher at school year’s end.

Finally! It’s the end of the school year, your exams are over, and summer vacation is all you can think about. Clearly, this means you’re not going to be seeing some of your favourite teachers anymore. Why not tell them what a difference they made to you during the school year. Or one of your all-time favourite teachers is going to another school. A hand-made goodbye card or photo collage of your last school trip made with Adobe Express might be just the thing – for either you personally, or for your whole class, to thank a teacher. In this article, we’ve collected a number of inspiring ideas as well as quotes and wishes you can use to create a small gift your teacher will long treasure.

Card of thanks: Thank you card for teacher.

It is sometimes difficult to find words to thank a teacher who has been part of your life for possibly a number of years. You have so many impressions and memories of that person and the time spent with them that it may seem impossible to express your thoughts and thanks into just a few lines. This article includes messages, wishes, and sayings you can include in cards bidding them a fond farewell, as well as a few ideas for small presents you and possibly your classmates can get together in creating for a joint goodbye message. The following sentences can help get you started in writing a personal thank you card to a special teacher:

  1. Dear Mr/Ms XY, I want to thank you for how you explained the world in such a fascinating manner. You’ve awakened my interest in this subject and helped me understand it.
  2. I want to say thanks so much for your willingness to always help us when we had any questions. Thanks to you, I now understand this subject much better.
  3. You succeeded in making it easy to learn this subject with your always interesting and creative teaching. Your support and feedback helped me improve a lot in this subject – and beyond.
  4. Thanks so much for always being ready to listen to us and for encouraging us to speak up!
  5. Dear Mr/Ms XY, thanks for showing us that mistakes are always part of the learning process and never something to be ashamed of. Thanks to you, I understand this subject much better now.
  6. I want to say thank you for your untiring support and patience. The way you explained everything and motivated me really helped me improve my grades.
  7. Thanks so much for your support and untiring help when we were studying for our final exams. You really helped me improve my skills and achieve my goals. I am very thankful for everything you did for us!
  8. Dear Mr/Ms XY, your ability to teach and motivate us has been really amazing. Now, at the end of the school year, I want to take this opportunity to say thank you for your effort and support.
  9. Dear Mr/Ms XY, you have the amazing skill of awakening curiosity and promoting our love of learning. Thank you for your effort!
  10. At the end of this school year, I have only one thing left to say: Thank you for your inspiring words and motivation! You made me work twice as hard as I would have. Many thanks for your support!
thank-you, thank you AND teacher

Thank you, teacher: Quotes and wishes.

There’s no question that teachers play a major role in our lives when we’re in school. Many teachers always had an open ear for questions and showed interest in what you were learning or how the class was progressing. And what about the infectious enthusiasm of other teachers, who may have inspired one or the other student to follow in their footsteps? Take this opportunity to say “Thank You” to that teacher with an appropriate quote or wish. We’ve collected 10 sayings, quotes, and wishes for you here:

  1. Albert Einstein said he never taught his pupils but only attempted to provide conditions that helped them learn. You did the same thing for us, and for that we will always be grateful.
  2. It was such a pleasure for us to have you over the past few years. We hope that your future classes will enjoy your teaching as much as we did.
  3. You really instilled in us a thirst for knowledge, and for that we will always remember you. We wish you a wonderful summer holiday and upcoming new school year!
  4. Aristotle said that teaching is the highest form of understanding. You always proved this and gave us the desire to understand more.
  5. You helped me be the best version of me I possibly could be – and then some. Thank you and all the best for your further career!
  6. The most important thing I learned from you is curiosity and to never stop questioning. I’ll always be grateful for that.
  7. You taught us that all of life involves learning, from the time you’re born till the time you die. I’ll always appreciate your faith in us!
  8. George Carlin said, “Don’t just teach your children to read. Teach them to question what they read. Teach them to question everything.” You did this for us and I’ll always be thankful!
  9. You remind me of Benjamin Franklin, who said, “Tell me and I will forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I’ll learn.” Thank you so much for your approach in school. It will always stay with me.
  10. When we came into your classroom at the beginning of the year, we didn’t know how hard we’d work – and just how much we’d learn. Thank you and all the best for the future!

Acknowledging influence: Thank you message for teacher.

It’s not only school pupils who move to a new form or school; teachers may also get new classes or change schools. The end of the school year is the perfect time to show your favourite teacher your appreciation with a nice thank you card. We’ve collected 10 sayings and wishes for a goodbye card for teachers:

  1. A great teacher is difficult to find, hard to leave, and impossible to forget!
  2. It was a blessing having you as a teacher!
  3. It’s now time to say thank you for the past so that the future will begin under a lucky star.
  4. We say goodbye to you with both a twinkle and a tear. You made us the class we are now today.
  5. Superheroes don’t wear capes – they teach!
  6. Goodbye, Auf Wiedersehen, Adieu, Arrivederci, Hasta la Vista! No matter the language we use, we will miss you!
  7. Heartfelt, tolerant, sharp, honest, creative, reliable – all of this describes you. Thank you for everything!
  8. As a class teacher, you were always there for us and our questions and concerns. We would like to thank you and wish you the best of luck in the future.
  9. You were a great teacher and your lessons were a joy even on long days. We wish you all the best for the future!

Teacher’s token: Thank you teacher gift.

How can you express your thanks to that memorable teacher you’ll never forget? The one who was always there to give you a little extra help or encouragement? Finding a small present can be difficult, for two reasons: If the present is going to be from the whole class, it shouldn’t plunder the class’s entire funds, and two, if it’s an individual present, there are limits on what you are allowed to give (more about that later). But expressing your gratitude with a card accompanied by a small item doesn’t have to be all that difficult. What about making something personal for that special teacher, which will remind them about you for a long time? One of the following ideas might be perfect for your favourite teacher.

  1. Personalize a notebook: Create a notebook with a handmade cover that has your teacher’s name on it, possibly a picture or collage of your class, and a nice message like “Best Teacher”. With Adobe Express you can create an individual notebook cover in no time.
  2. Make a stress ball: Truly, a teacher’s life is not the easiest. Whether they have stressy classes to teach, homework to correct into the nighttime hours, or argumentative pupils, stress is part of the game. How about making them a stress ball to go with a self-made card. Instructions for making your own stress balls are easy to find. They’re quick to make and can be unmistakably customized, e.g. with just a few household items. Just the thing for a little relaxation.
  3. Design a bookmark: One thing all teachers have in common is that they read a lot. What better sign of thanks than a self-made bookmark featuring a personal message or an inspiring quote? Adobe Express offers various bookmark templates that you can personalize as you like and add photos, a quote or design elements.
  4. Create a personal thank you card: It’s often the littlest things that make people the happiest. This is so true of personal thank you cards. Adobe Express makes it easy to create your own card and add personal words or even a quote. This is unquestionably a present your teacher will treasure.
  5. Simple origami mobile: A small, colourful mobile with as few as three origami figures (e.g. cranes, frogs, dragons, swans, etc.) can be made very quickly and requires very few items. Enclosed in a handmade card, this could be a perfect and effortless addition to your thank you message.

Good to know.

What’s the best way to say thank you to my teacher?

Your teacher may have accompanied you in school for many years – and in addition to your parents, be an adult who knows you better than most. They have certainly contributed to your knowledge as well as to your future. Normally, a thank you note to a teacher would include some words of appreciation for the help and support they have given you as well as good wishes for their future career.

What gifts do teachers like?

If you want to thank your teacher with a small gift and are wondering what they might like, it’s good to know that expensive presents are generally not allowed. Small, handmade gifts, including cards or some of the ideas above, however, are often perfectly appropriate and gladly accepted. With Adobe Express you can easily create a personal thank you card for your teacher and express your gratitude.

What should I wish my teacher when I leave their class?

In addition to thanking them for their help and encouragement, you can wish them all the best in their further careers – or if they will be going into retirement soon, tell them you hope their dreams for their post-school life will all be fulfilled. Whatever you say, personalize it with a card made with Adobe Express.

Is Adobe Express free?

Yes. The basic version of Adobe Express includes everything you need to start working creatively. Adobe Express offers thousands of design templates, images, videos and royalty-free photos, quick actions for processing images, as well as much more. You can say thank you to a teacher, for example, by creating a thank you card, a notebook cover, or a poster they’ll enjoy for years.
