Teacher Appreciation Ideas
Teacher Thank You and Retirement Poems


Teacher appreciation ideas, poems, and verses for National Teacher Day and Teacher Appreciation Week.

Like the rest of us, teachers appreciate the thoughtfulness of receiving thank you cards, poems and gifts - at Christmas - on the teacher's birthday - and other special occasions.

Another important time - often overlooked - to show your thanks and appreciation, is at your teacher's retirement.


As Spring fever turns into Summer vacation, and you're ready to head out the school door - especially when you're leaving the class for good - don't forget to thank your teacher for a year of hard work.

Teacher Appreciation in the United States of America is in May.

Thank You Teacher Poems

This poem is called "You're the Teacher"

Teaching can be a thankless job. I know. I've been a teacher for years.

Thank you Poems to Teachers are a great way to show your appreciation for the hard work and dedication of your teacher.


Teacher Thank You Poem

This poem is titled "The Sun is Setting on School Days"

It's another original thank you poem by a teacher, for teachers.

If you're a teacher or parent, here's a reminder we really never stop teaching, even when we "retire". Our work goes on in the lives of our students more by example, than by using only words.

Poems for When Your Teacher Retires

Remembering a teacher at the time of their retirement is a great teacher appreciation idea.

I wrote 2 poems specifically for when a teacher retires:

  1. Once a Teacher, Always a Teacher - This poem tells us that by our words and example, we continue to teach wherever we go.
  2. You Live On! - This poem is a reminder that our work lives on in the lives of others that we influenced - the parents, the students, and the next generations.

Poems for When Your Principal Retires

I wrote these three poems for the occasion when a principal retires:

  1. We All Agree!
  2. Like an Eagle, Soar!
  3. A Moment Please

Of course, feel free to adapt a teacher poem for a principal and vice versa.

And if you still have trouble finding what you're looking for, check out all the retirement poems to find the poem that's just right.


Teacher Appreciation Ideas - From a Teacher

Very often, it takes years of schooling and preparation to become a teacher.

For years, I was a school teacher. Now I'm an online teacher.

Without good teachers, we might still be living in caves and acting like animals!

There are many types of teachers. School teachers, business teachers, motivational and inspirational teachers. They help us face the challenges and show us the way to success. They are willing to share their knowledge and show us how to do things.

Thank your stars!
