How To Get The Best Education Possible: Tip #81

Teachers love getting gives from students and parents, but a simple note or personal phone call really goes a long way. That brings us to tip #81.

Tip #81: Show your child's teacher appreciation.

Just as parents like to hear about their child's progress and academic success, teachers are grateful for your recognition. Here are some suggestions on showing the teacher appreciation according to Stacy DeBroff, author of "The Mom Book":

1.Writing a small personal card letting the teacher know you noticed a new spark in your child, or remarks about her expertise and instruction. It will mean a lot to the teacher and it will strength your relationship.
2.Instead of just signing your child's homework or test papers, add a small note of thanks.
3. Write a letter at the end of the year thanking the teacher of the role they played in your child's life. Leave space for your child to write something.
4. For a teacher you feel is truly wonderful, write a letter and give specific examples of how the teacher touched your child's life and forward it to the principal.
5. Giving gifts to teachers is a great way to say thank you, be sure there is no cap on how much you can give to a teacher. In some states, $50.00 is the limit for giving gifts to a teacher because of bribery concerns.
