Teacher Appreciation Verses Poems? Give yourself a gold've just found lots.
Because you're sooo special (Miss Giles)
This card was especially sought
You know I wasn't always well behaved
But I know I was always so well taught
I will miss you..
..And thank you

Alternative, for card makers

Because you're special (Mrs White)
This card is handmade, not bought
I wasn't always well behaved
But I was always so well taught
I will miss you..
..And thank you

These poems are ideal for Teacher Appreciation Day or Week or when the preschooler, pupil or student is leaving the school or the class or when the teacher is leaving for progression or retirement

To Teacher, when pupil is leaving (or use present tense if still there)

I know I wasn't the best behaved 
That you've ever taught.
I know I got distracted 
Much more than I ought

And I didn't pay attention 
Every minute of the day,
And admittedly, my favourite time
Was going out to play 

Yet determinedly you taught me 
Putting me to the test,
Encouraging my efforts
As you made me do my best. 

Some lessons were a challenge 
And you taught me how to cope, 
Each day I grew in confidence, 
Ability and hope.

I really now appreciate
You made me learn thro' fun.
Thank you very very much (Miss Giles)
For all you've said and done.

That I'll remember you

I wish all my teachers had been like you.
I will remember you my whole life through;

Thank you so much

Teacher Thank You Poems
© V4C

With a special gift for learning
And with a heart that deeply cares,
You add a lot of love
To everything you share,
And even though you mean a lot,
You'll never know how much,
For you helped to change the world
Through every life you touched.

You sparked the creativity
In the students whom you taught,
And helped them strive for goals
That could not be bought,
You are such a special teacher
That no words can truly tell
However much you're valued
For the work you do so well.

Thank you so much for being
So very nice, kind and good;
I like you so much, (Miss Giles)
I'd stay here if I could
I always loved your class;
Your teaching helped me see,
That to have a full and happy life,
Learning is the key.

Teacher Appreciation Verses Poems

Whose child is this?" I asked one day
Seeing a little one out at play
"Mine", said the parent with a tender smile
"Mine to keep a little while
To bathe his hands and comb his hair
To tell him what he is to wear
To prepare him that he may always be good
And each day do the things he should"

"Whose child is this?" I asked again
As the door opened and someone came in
"Mine", said the teacher with the same tender smile
"Mine, to keep just for a little while
To teach him how to be gentle and kind
To train and direct his dear little mind
To help him live by every rule
And get the best he can from school"

"Whose child is this?" I ask once more
Just as the little one entered the door
"Ours" said the parent and the teacher as they smiled
And each took the hand of the little child
"Ours to love and train together
Ours this blessed task forever."

Thank You (Miss Giles) for your part in our joint venture

Thank you (Miss Giles) for all you've done
For teaching all I need to know
I'll always remember you most fondly
No matter where I go.

Thank you, (Miss Giles)
For teaching me to be
Bigger, stronger, better

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember
Involve me and I learn"
Benjamen Franklin said that
And I say "The highest praise as a teacher you earn"

You remind me of a land dwelling reptile
Shielded from predators by a shell
Because you tortoise so well
It gets worse
Your career is like its marine cousin
Yes, you can guess
Always willing to stick your neck out
It's been a turtle success
Thank you for everything...
well except for teaching me how to write poetry

You're a truly gifted teacher
Very wise
"You see tomorrow
In every child's eyes"

Thank you very much for everything

I leave smarter than I arrived
And you played a major part
You taught not just from a book
But also from your heart

You have certainly worked in a classy place
You have often put a smile on my face
Your teaching skills have abounded
Thanks to you, this live wire's now well grounded
