Unsure of what to say in a thank you video for your teacher?

Watch this video of thank you messages for teachers:

Here are some more ideas to help get your juices flowing:

  • Share a story about how your teacher positively impacted your life.

  • We know you listen to your teachers. What's a famous line that your teacher always repeats in class? Repeat it back to them!

  • It's "dress like your teacher day" — dress up as your teacher in your video.

  • Grab your paper and markers — write a message to say "thank you" to your teachers.

  • Or, just a simple "thank you." It's a message that teachers don't often hear.


Have Faculty Get In on the Fun

A VidDay invitation for Teacher Appreciation Week

Gather all the staff together.

Get faculty from the cafeteria to the school library to show their appreciation and thanks to all teachers. You can even get the Principal or Vice-Principal to share their kind words with that fantastic teacher. Teachers hearing the kind words from their students, boss, and coworkers will make them feel truly appreciated for their commitment and hard work.

You can even create an appreciation video for other faculty in the school. It doesn't need to be just for teachers. Have students celebrate and thank cafeteria staff, janitors, library staff, and more.

An Idea for Parent-Teacher Association

Suppose you need some ideas to bring to the following parent-teacher organization (PTO) or parent-teacher association (PTA) meeting. A video gift for teacher appreciation week is a great idea to bring up! Not only does it bring the students together to create something meaningful, but it gives thanks to the teachers who have worked so hard this year.

So at the next PTA/PTO meeting, you can bring up making a beautiful video montage as a gift for teacher appreciation or even graduation.
