Christmas Messages for Teachers

Aside from our parents, teachers have one of the most impactful roles in our development. Whether it’s the elementary school teacher who comes to your rescue by interrupting a bully, or a college professor who finally got that “light bulb on” in Calculus, teachers enrich our lives. Christmas is a time to recognize, express gratitude, and spread cheer to those who have made a difference in our lives. A small gift (harkening back to an apple for the teacher in elementary school) may be an appropriate and welcome gesture. Whether or not there’s a gift, a heartfelt message is in order. This may be accomplished through an Email, but there’s nothing like a hand written sentiment to demonstrate sincerity. Often taken for granted, and certainly unappreciated, teachers deserve this warm gesture of recognition. Following are some samples that may spark ideas for your own personal message.
