Arguably one of the most important careers, teaching is the only profession that touches every person on the planet one way or another. With out them, we wouldn’t have presidents, doctors, astronauts, chemist or event firefighters to name a few. Here are some wonderful tips for teacher appreciation.

Teacher Appreciation Tips*

Recognize all staff members. That includes the principal and administrative staff, custodians, the school nurse, adjustment counselors, reading specialists, the computer/media room attendant, the librarian, and others.

Spread your appreciation efforts over the year. An end-of-year lunch is great, but teachers need consistent messages of support from parents all through the year. Meaningful recognition doesn’t have to cost a lot. In honor of teachers, consider collecting poems written by students, making special announcements over the PA system, or decorating the bulletin board.

Be mindful of teachers’ time. Your group might want to plan a two-hour assembly and sit-down breakfast as part of Teacher Appreciation Week, but if your plan conflicts with standardized tests or classroom prep time, teachers aren’t going to be happy. Ask the principal in advance for a time and date that work so you can plan around any potential scheduling conflicts.

Let everyone in on it. Whether it’s by writing a note or cooking or decorating for a special day, be sure all parents have a chance to say thanks. Longbranch PTO board member Mindy Bell says her group invites families to send in $1 to help with the PTO’s weeklong teacher appreciation festivities. According to Bell, parents find this more convenient than trying to find the right gift for each teacher.
