The United Nations’ (UN) World Teachers’ Day, October 5th, celebrates the role teachers play in providing quality education at all levels. Some celebrations are focused on a single teacher, while others celebrate the teaching community as a whole.
Here at Christmas in July we wanted to know what you have that relates to this and the story behind the item.
I have a number of printed and printable art and signs that are great for teachers.
They are utilitarian and motivating!
Here’s an orange quiet sign perfect for October. Teachers can post this earning on the front of their doors or even in the classroom. It warns hall traffic to keep it down and lets everyone know great achievements are being made inside. As a student, I’d rather look at this sign when I’m taking a test.
I am not for sure if this is what you are looking for, but I started a series of painted mugs called, Halloween for Heroes, and teachers is one of those heroes. You can see each mug says you can’t scare me I’m a teacher, nurse or fireman. Those are the ones I have done so far. Teachers are vital to our youth. In conjunction with parents, and other members of society they hold the future of the world in their hands, and hearts.
For a teacher that does any sewing or quilting or any kind of craft.
I love the graphic 45 paper range and made these cute matchbook notes with it. These would make lovely little teacher appreciation presents for the end of the year! They are perfect for keeping in a handbag (or on the teacher’s desk) for jotting notes. Teachers always need stationery!!
A Teacher needs a School House to teach in…. Many of my buttons are finds of discontinued buttons. These are a great find of mine and I was able to get several sets of these. A great button to use on a gift you are making for that special teacher.
I made this pair of coasters especially for my 5 year old Pre-Primary teacher as a thank you gift at the end of this year.
Apples for the teacher to brighten up her days — practical too for that cuppa
Teachers always need to be thanked for the hard work they do!
