The month of May is all about Teacher Appreciation. The fifth month of the year is Teacher Appreciation Month, and with special dates throughout -- including National Teacher Day and Teacher Appreciation Week -- there are plenty of opportunities to show the teachers who have impacted your life that you care.

Below, explore various ways to express your gratitude, including poems and songs, thank-you notes, heartfelt gifts, and more. Not sure how to say thanks? You'll find a little bit of everything in this collection, with ideas to help parents, students, teachers, and administrators celebrate throughout the month.
