Happy Birthday Quotes for Teachers

Birthday Wishes for Teachers

Writing birthday wishes for teachers is easy when we understand the nature of their relationships with us is professional not personal, and we reach out with respect to acknowledge their special places in our lives. Once we know something about teachers’ daily grinds and a few specifics about individuals to whom we are extending birthday wishes, we have only to choose the right vehicles.

What is special about teachers?

Educators see potential in us before we know we have any. Especially where teachers go above and beyond their roles as educators to cross lines of poverty, sickness, neglect, and tragedy to reach students where they live and bring them into a right path toward their goals, their selflessness can be inspiring.

What can you take of these special things to use in wishes?

Icons of education like apples, alphabets, globes, or any classroom tools of the trade that symbolize the profession and dedication of its members are great springboards to well-written birthday wishes. Using an apple-themed card or gift, you could write classic sentiments about the teacher you have the privilege to know or work with. Symbolizing how far education can take us, globes represent a world of birthday wishes for a happy day.

Greeting cards need not be the only transportation for birthday wishes.

Great places to tuck your birthday messages include teacher’s favorite candy bar with an enclosure expressing birthday wishes to a sweet teacher. Plant a bouquet of warm wishes with a seed packet attached inside of the card to acknowledge a teacher’s favorite hobby off the clock.

Funny, sentimental and serious wishes need good timing.

Selecting the right style of birthday wishes depends mainly on timing. Funny wishes are a welcome respite from the seriousness of test-laden weeks or extended, dreary weather days. They are great ice-breakers if you can find or create one that speaks specifically to teacher issues like having to present the same concept a myriad of ways until she finds one a student can understand. Go with classic, generic warm wishes if the teacher has experienced a recent loss of loved one or other setback. Sentimental can get too personal, but nostalgia is always in style.

Know how to more discreet and less familiar.

As tempting as it can be to offer personal, intimate messages to teachers about how much we love them, avoid exaggerated emotional digression. Keep messages focused on the teacher without crossing lines of familiarity. Avoid a style of communicating that implies, perhaps unintentionally, that you received or expect something in return for your card and gift, if one will be attached to the card. If your relationship exists only in the classroom, then check your personal feelings at the door when you come in.

Remember that the secret to writing birthday wishes teachers fondly remember is to remain professional without becoming too familiar and time it just right. Teachers dedicate their lives to preparing us for ours. It is only natural we want to wish them the best.
