Saying Thanks to a Teacher

Teachers work long hours preparing lessons for their students, grading tests and papers, taking care of necessary administrative tasks, and all the other work that goes above and beyond their job description, often including using their own money to purchase classroom supplies. During Teacher Appreciation Week (taking place annually on the first full week in May) we express our thanks to the awesome men and women who teach and care for our childen. We also send Teacher Thank You cards to show our gratitude. But what if you’d like to send a teacher a litlte somethign more in addition to a card?

Wonderful gifts for teachers include:

  • School supplies (grade level appropriate) such as glue, paper clips, binder clips, pencils, child friendly paints, etc. You can create a cool School Supply Cake as an artful presentation or just a tote bag of goodies
  • Age appropriate books for children to plump up the classroom library or toys/games with an educational bent that are fun to play.
  • A reusable lunch bag filled with rubber grading stamps, ink pads, and stickers for teachers to give out to students or a gift card to a book store or office supply store.
  • Homemade classroom decorations personalized to the teacher and made with love.

And when you want to celebrate a special event like a Teacher’s Birthday with a gift, include a unique card from Greeting Card Universe!  Choose one of our special selection designed for the occasion, order on-line, personalize with your message, and we’ll mail your card the next business day.

Happy Mother’s Day … for Your Teacher

A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge, and wisdom in the pupils.”
—Ever Garrison

Mother’s Day (in 2014, that’s May 11) isn’t just for moms anymore. A motherly loved one, such as a grandmother, aunt, or sister-in-law, is often honored, as are those who act as mentors to children – “other mothers” like teachers.

Teachers often go above and beyond their basic duties to help students learn. They are instrumental in creating the future by teaching children the things they need to grow, not only as good students, but as good people. Teachers don’t just furnish an education—they equip children for life.

Show a teachers how much you appreciate their dedication and hard work with unique Mother’s Day cards for Teachers from Greeting Card Universe. We think teachers deserve a special “thanks” for everything they do. Need a card at the last minute? No problem! Order on-line, get free in-store pickup—usually in 1 hour—at most Target and Bartell Drug stores.

Teachers Help Make Us What We Are

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”
—Henry Brooks Adams

The first week in May is Teacher Appreciation Week, while May 6 is Teacher Appreciation Day. Across the US a, students and former students, as well as school administrators and community leaders, express their gratitude to the nation’s teachers, who shape the future in many ways through the children in their classrooms.

The history of Teacher Appreciation Day in the US begins in 1944, when an Arizona teacher began lobbying politicians to establish a national day to honor teachers. Today, many countries around the globe celebrate a special day for teachers, though most are on a different date.

Teachers work hard, often going above and beyond their normal work hours to ensure their students receive the best care and education they can provide. In honor of teachers everywhere who make such a difference in their children’s lives, Greeting Card Universe offers unique Teacher Appreciation Day cards for every teacher and educator in school so you can send them a special “thank you” for their dedication and commitment to creating a better future through their students.
