"A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops."
Whether you are looking for an idea for an end-of-year gift for your child's teacher or for something specific for America's "Teacher Appreciation Day" or "Teacher Appreciation Week" - this is the place!
Teacher Appreciation Week is 1st - 5th May 2017 in the US, and Teacher Appreciation Day is 2nd May. You'll find lots of ideas on this page for Teacher Appreciation Day and Week, and of course they are also great for end of year "thank yous".
For many formative years, teachers are one of the most important adults in a child's life - and yet for much of the time we take them for granted.
Traditionally we remember to show our appreciation for our child's teacher either during "Teacher Appreciation Week" (in the US) or at the end of the school year. But there is nothing to stop you letting your teachers know how much you appreciate them at any time of the year!
A quick "thank you" note or email takes a moment to write and send but the pleasure it gives is enormous. And you will find many other teacher appreciation ideas below.

God Made Teachers:
God understood our thirst for knowledge, and our need to be led by someone wiser;
He needed a heart of compassion,of encouragement, and patience;
Someone who would accept the challenge regardless of the opposition
Someone who could see potential and believe in the best in others . . .
So He made Teachers.
