Teachers are some of the busiest professionals around. They often work with dozens of students each day and are tasked with conveying important lessons in an easy-to-understand manner. Their job duties typically go above and beyond what the on-paper description entails. From mediating student relationships, to leading extracurricular organizations, teacher responsibilities are vast and important.

Getting a heartfelt gift from a parent, fellow teacher, administrator, or student can help remind a teacher of how meaningful their work is and can motivate them to continue to make a difference. Some occasions that are great for giving teacher appreciation gifts include:
