Reasons for Teacher Appreciation

In any workplace, recognition is critical to keep employees engaged. In a school setting, teacher engagement has a direct impact on lesson effectiveness and on how receptive students are in the classroom. When you manage teachers or work with teachers, you know how important each teacher is to the organization's success as a whole. So whether you're an Administrator who's interested in expressing your appreciation for the hard working teachers on your staff, or a student interested in making a good first impression, we've got plenty of teacher-centric gifts in our product lineup.

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:

  • 1. Last day of Summer / Welcome Back
  • 2. First Day of School
  • 3. Teacher Work Anniversary
  • 4. Project Completion - congratulate teachers whose work on a project concluded, such as the direction of a school play or the completion of a yearbook
  • 5. Last day of school
  • 6. National Teachers' Day or Teacher Appreciation Week
  • 7. Teacher Retirements - Teachers who are retiring also deserve gifts as a sign of gratitude for the impact they've made. A genuine gift is a way for current and former students to send the teacher off on a positive note, so that they're compelled to continue being a positive influence in the lives of others. Colleagues and administrators who understand the work a former teacher has put in can show their gratitude, and the retiring teacher leaves a school with positive feelings for the institution, which can improve the reputation of the school.
