Teacher Appreciation Printable

With teacher appreciation week just around the corner I thought it was time to get a little something, something in order. Back in my teaching days I adored this week of thanks. I loved getting letters from students thanking me, a luncheon from the PTA, and a thoughtful gift here or there.

The husband and I worked hard (and long) on this printable. I think it kind of broke the husband’s heart to just give it away for free, but these are my people!

This print was inspired by chalkboard art. Seeing as though it is for a teacher, it seemed fitting.

As always, this printable fits in an 8×10 opening. It would look superb matted and framed with a bow and a delightful little thank you card.

    I love this, Megan!  Pinned as a gift idea — any teacher would be thrilled to get this.  I’m thinking for my kids’ Sunday School leaders…  have a good weekend, friend!

    This is beautiful! My husband is a teacher and he never gets cool stuff like this. I told him he needs to start dropping hints to his students and see if he can get some chocolates out of them or something. 😉

      LOL! Well here is to hoping that this is the year your husband cleans house.

    Hello Megan,

    I have been searching the web for a special teacher appreciation gift, and when I saw your printable I knew it was better than anything I imagined.  My son is in PreK 4 and we were blessed with a wonderful teacher .. more than a teacher to him.  I would like to pass along your gift to his teacher.. in the spirit of one teacher to the next and one mom to a very much appreciated teacher.  I am new at working with printables.  Can you suggest what I should print this on?  I intend to have this matted and framed. 

    I will be a fan of your etsy store now!

    Thank you,

      There is a colored background, so I would suggest taking it somewhere (Kinkos, Office Depot, Office Max) and having it printed there. They will have a variety of paper for you to sample. Best of luck!

  • Lina@FancyFrugalLife

    Thanks for this!! I am in love with it! Made a pedestal frame and gave it to my son to take to his teacher today. I shared your link with my facebook fans :)

    Love this – sometimes it’s hard to find fun things for teachers of my older kids…things they won’t consider “cheesy.”  Thank you so much for sharing!

    I love this!!! So many teacher appreciation gifts are silly little throwaway things. This I would have hung in my classroom! Nice work!

  • http://www.balancinghome.com Megan Bray

    Thanks for the heads up. Sure looks like it!

  • songgirlc

    I used this printable for my son’s end of school year gift for his 1st Grade teacher last year. It turns out so ‘classy’, a simple, beautiful print that means a lot to the giver. Thank you for sharing it for free- the gift-giving for teachers can get expensive!

  • Mom of 2 angels

    Hi, I’d love to use your teacher printable (takes a hand, opens a mind and touches a heart) for my 2 daughters’ teachers. It’s the perfect thought!!

  • Alisa

    This is awesome and I would so love to make something form my sons teacher however, is there any way to get this in a vector format? I am willing to pay a reasonable amount if it can be done.

    I found this printable used on a teacher wreath…did you make the wreath as well? I want to use it in my blog post and give proper credit. I found the wreath here: http://askannamoseley.com/2014/04/teacher-appreciation-gift-ideas/

    • http://www.balancinghome.com Megan Bray

      The wreath isn’t mind, but the printable most definitely is!

      • http://www.giftcards.com/gift-card-girlfriend Gift Card Girlfriend

        I added a link to your printable on my blog post. It does fit perfectly inside the teacher appreciation wreath. Thanks for sharing. (You can find it on giftcardsDOTcom BLOG
        if interested.)

    Is there any way to invert the colours on this so I can print it like the one on your bag……I cannot seem to do it on my PC
