Dear _______________,

What a wonderful year it’s been! As my Student Government teacher you have been such an amazing inspiration to me and our whole senior class. Thank you so much for all the school, social, and college advice you’ve given to me this year. As you know, some of it has been really life changing for me. The enclosed gift card is a small token of my thanks for your excellent advice. When I leave to go out of state for college, I will always look back at this time in my life very fondly and remember you as being one of my most important mentors.

Thanks a million,

Dear _______________,

When it comes to high school teachers you’re the best of the best! I really lucked out having you as my English teacher this year. In college I plan to major in journalism and all of your helpful tips and advice have been really valuable. This year I’ve come a long way in shoring up my writing skills and really honing in on my own unique storytelling and writing style. I’m definitely going to miss you when I move to a new school next year. But hopefully I can visit this campus again every now and then to say hello. Many good wishes are sent your way for a fabulous summer vacation!

Sincerely,

Mentor Thank You Note Wording

Dear _______________,

At the beginning of the school year I started out as a shy freshman. It was really hard moving to a new state and going to school knowing absolutely no one. I feel blessed to have enrolled in your algebra class and have you as my teacher. Because of your friendship, mentoring, and after-school math club I have been able to adjust more quickly to this high-achieving academic environment. Between the chaos of moving and the drama that comes with high school, I have really grown leaps and bounds both socially and academically. I give you a lot of credit for this. Your advice, motivational talks and belief in me as a student really pushed me forward and gave me the confidence I needed to find my own way. Thank you so much for everything. You are a fantastic mentor.

With gratitude,

Dear _______________,

Thank you so much for your kindness and for helping our kids fundraise for science camp. I know how hard it must be trying to assist a classroom of children who want to enjoy an important field trip experience but lack the financial means to needed to pay. And dealing with the additional layer of difficulty that comes with lack of parental involvement must be extremely frustrating. I want you to know how much our family appreciates all of the time you spent organizing three separate fundraisers and securing enough donations from local businesses to take the kids to science camp at Sly Park.

A multitude of thanks,

(YOUR NAME HERE)

Dance Teacher Thank You Notes

Dear _______________,

Thank you so much for being an awesome hip-hop/jazz dance teacher! Your advanced choreography skills allowed our dance team to stand out and shine at the winter dance recital. Everyone was completely on point. Our flawless performance was due to the patience and experience you brought to us as an accomplished teacher and dancer. We are so excited about heading to competition in Hawaii next month. We’re bringing our A-game. We know that last year you helped your team from New York achieve a first-place win. And this year we’re working hard to prove that the girls from California are number one. Thank you for bringing your passion for dance to our studio here in San Francisco.

You’re the best!

Dear ________________,

Words alone cannot express our gratitude for all the time you spent tutoring our child after school. He was really struggling in Geometry and felt completely lost and discouraged. But because of your help he now has a firm understanding of basic concepts. Although he’ll need to repeat this class next year, I believe he’ll find himself on much firmer ground. Thank you so much for your skilled teaching and patience. You’re one of those very special teachers that in the future students will look back and remember with fondness and appreciation.

Thanks a million!

The enthusiasm and joy you have for teaching creates a fantastic atmosphere for learning. The patience you have for your students, especially the ones who struggle to keep up, is truly amazing. You’ve really set the bar high for my expectations from teachers in the years ahead! And thank you so much for the beautiful volunteer gift. I really appreciate the hand-carved wooden flowers painted in beautiful colors. They’ve already found a comfortable home on my kitchen window sill. Thank you again for a great year!
