It a fact that teachers have a great negative or positive effect on students. If your teacher has had the latter, it is time to show some love.

Technically, teaching is difficult, and those teachers who can truly make a difference deserve more than just appreciation.

As a student, appreciation may be all that you have to offer, so make sure that you write your letter properly.


In your appreciation letter, talk about all the positives of your relationship with your teacher.

Teacher Appreciation Letter from Student

Ms. Hilda Greene
100 Bear Road
Fort Lauderdale, FL 38469


Dear Ms. Greene:

I was reflecting on how my life has changed since you became my teacher. You are not only a teacher for me but a mentor and a friend.

Had it not been the fact that you lifted me when I needed it the most, I would not have been where I am now. As a sacred and confused 13-year-old, I had no one to look up to. You changed that as soon as you met me. Since then, I have held on to your words of wisdom. They have stopped me from going astray during some many troubling moments.

The fact that you make me a bright student says a lot about your ability to make lives. Your confidence in me pushed me to do my best. Fifteen years later, I am a successful teacher myself and have been doing my best to walk in your footsteps where my own students are concerned.

Ms. Green, I think of you every day, and remember all that you have taught me. Thank you so much for being a constant presence in my life. I am forever indebted to for all that you have done for me.


Much love,


Dana Carter
