Every year on May 9, we should celebrate our teachers on Teacher Appreciation Day.
Ttell your favorite teachers how much they mean to you with a personalized Thank You Card. No matter if you are still in school or thinking back to teachers that had a strong influence on you, take the opportunity and show appreciation – don’t assume they already know how you feel.
You can thank them with a heartfelt Thank You message written on your favorite Printable Card or Design Paper, or by surprising them with a Best Teacher Award Certificate or Award Plaque.

Reach inside yourself, find your perfect, most authentic words and share them with a teacher or mentor.
Historically, the first National Teacher Day was celebrated on March 9, 1980, after Eleanor Roosevelt persuaded Congress to proclaim it. Currently, National Teacher Appreciation Day or National Teacher Day is observed on the Tuesday of the first full week in May. The National Education Association describes National Teacher Day “as a day for honoring teachers and recognizing the lasting contributions they make to our lives”.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry said that “If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.” So, take a moment and ask yourself who were the teachers that inspired you to dream big? Who made you feel those dreams were within your grasp? Who were the teachers or mentors that gave you the tools to start going after those dreams?
Once you know who they are, go tell them how much they mean to you! Expressing gratitude is good for you so write that Thank You Card, send that letter, make that phone call. It will also show your teachers that their efforts matter and will motivate them to keep going.
You can use iclicknprint to customize Geographics Thank you Cards and be creative using other stationery such as letterhead or invitations that you can creatively customize using your own clip art or artistic skills or the free clip art and wording iclicknprint offers under templates and clip art. Note: A new and improved Iclicknprint version will be launched later this year, in HTML.
