Thank You Poems to Teachers
Short Teacher Appreciation Poems

Pear in Tree

These short thank you poems to teachers are a great way to honor your teachers and celebrate the years of dedication involved in teaching.

Even a teacher who has just started teaching has already put in years of school and preparation.

And we gain experience with little joys and little sorrows and memories of a lifetime as the years go quickly by.

Here's to hoping that your teaching will bear much fruit in your students and for generations to come.

The teacher poems on this website are original work. And they're written by a teacher, because I've been a teacher for years.

I'm glad to share my thoughts in poetry form to thank our teachers, and honor and celebrate the gifting and calling we are privileged to share.

3 Short Thank You Poems to Teachers

     by Paul Berchtold, January, 2011

76. Hearts You Reach

Hearts you reach
When you teach.

In many ways,
For endless days,
You're ever giving.
It's your living,
That stands out,
With such clout.

Hearts you reach
When you teach.

You climb the hill,
Inspire, instill,
Us the same,
Keep our aim.

You open minds
Each one finds,
Their path to see,
True destiny.

Hearts you reach
When you teach.

77. Good Example

When going out the classroom door,
We owe you much, you've given more,
Than smiles and looks,
And wisdom from books,
It's how you live, give, and love outpour.

78. New Growth

You planted here a little tree,
It's time to leave the nursery,
And stretch its branches,
Reach new expanses,
Thank you teacher, to you, from me.
