Thanks to the teacher

Teachers can be influential in someone's life. Almost everyone can remember at least one teacher who gave them decisive impulses on their path in life that still have an impact today. No matter whether in school, in music lessons or during studies.

Often times, these people are pushed to the edge of our memories as soon as we move into the next stage of life. It is all the more worthwhile to sincerely say “thank you” to this special person.

Finding the right words can be difficult, especially when it has been some time since you last spoke to this person. That is why you will find formulations here that can give you inspiration.

Ideas and formulations

"Dear Mr. / Mrs. XY,
With these words I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have taught me over the years. You conveyed more to me than just learning material and facts, you have always been an important companion and contact person for me, and not just as a pedagogical specialist. As a person, you were always present and always had an open ear for questions, problems and difficulties of all kinds.
I would like to say thank you very much for this today. "

"Dear Mr. / Mrs. XY,
An old Latin proverb says that we do not learn for school, but for life. You have confirmed the correctness of these statements to me again and again during my school days: You taught me that the whole consists of more than just the sum of its parts. I learned from you that knowledge is not only used to simply be consumed and processed, but also to prepare us students for life and to shape us as human beings.
For this I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. "

"Dear Mr. / Mrs. XY,
At this point I would like to thank you once again for having served me as a role model and guide over the years and, in addition to teaching material, conveyed many important aspects of life to students: between blackboard pictures and transparencies, between homework and presentations She taught us that humor, openness and friendliness are also important aspects of interpersonal coexistence and that in addition to knowledge, imagination and creativity also play an important role.
Thank you very much for shaping these important years of our life in your personal way. "
