Teacher Appreciation Ideas for Parents

Parents, when was the last time you showed some appreciation for your kids’ teachers? Not recently, we bet.

Well, a little bit of appreciation goes a long way. Today on TeachHUB.com, frequent contributing writer Janell Cox lays out some simple ways parents can show their appreciation for teachers. Her ideas include:
  • Give a Gift Card
  • Boast about Them
  • Show them Respect
  • And More!

Janelle notes in summation: “As teachers, we can appreciate this list. Most teachers are parents themselves and sometimes forget how important their job really is. At the end of day, the best way to keep a teacher happy is to let them do their job, show them they are valued with a simple thank you, and respect them for who they are and what they are doing for your child.”

How do you make your child’s teacher happy? Did we leave anything out of this list?
