How do you say thanks to a teacher who’s done so much for you and meant so much to you? Easy. You let your heart do the talking. The following students did just that:

1. “I wish we could go back in time, so that we could be born at the same time, be the same age, and that way we could be best friends.”

2. “You’re the first person to notice me.”

3. “You always listen to me and don’t freak out. You don’t get mad if we mess up. You just  help us fix it.”

4. “We’re so lucky to have you. It’s almost like you’re a four-leaf clover.”

5. “You’re real. You don’t just teach us about school stuff. You teach us about life stuff.”

6. “I love you more than I love summer!”

7. “Mister, you are my idol.”

8. “Thank you for making my life better.”

9. “You picked the right job!”

10. “I didn’t know I could actually be smart. I can do anything, like be an astronaut!”

11. “Thanks for telling me I could do stuff, even when I didn’t think I could.”

12. “I don’t know how you did it, but you made me want to learn.”

13. “I think I might miss you.”

14. “You’re in my heartbeat forever.”
