Teacher Appreciation Doors

Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up — May 5th through the 9th! I thought I would share a bunch of Doors I decorated during a Teacher Appreciation Week a few years ago.  I did the door for my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher and then I made posters for the many other people who help out at the school.  This was the tradition at my children’s school that every teacher and worker at the school be recognized during Teacher Appreciation Week.

For my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher I went with an artist theme – using a palette and a paintbrush.  Here is how it looked –

Mrs Belliston has "painted" a love of learning in us!! She is the "Artist" -- we are her "Masterpieces"!

Mrs Belliston has “painted” a love of learning in us!! She is the “Artist” — we are her “Masterpieces”!

I wrote punny sayings on each color – here is what they said –

  • Purple – She adds “color” to our life in every way!
  • Orange – “Orange” you glad she loves all of us!
  • Yellow – Her smile is as bright as yellow Sunshine!
  • Blue – We’d be so “blue” without her!
  • Red – She is always “red”dy to teach us!
  • Green – Other school’s are “green” with envy that she’s our teacher!!
  • Pink –  We are tickled “pink” that she is our teacher!

I was really very excited that it turned out so well.  All of the components were drawn and cut out of colored butcher paper.

So next I did a poster for the teacher’s aide:

We are so "Grape"ful for Mrs Downs!!

For the Principal of the School, I put this on his door –

We appreciate you!! Mr Carter is just our "Tie"pe!!!

For the lovely ladies that work in the school office — this went on their counter:

We're so glad we "picked" these Secra"cherries" for our school!! Without them our school would be the "Pits"!

Our Librarian’s door I decorated with a kite –

Mrs. Mauerman our librarian) helps our love of reading "Soar"!!

We could not leave out the 5 wonderful women who worked in our lunchroom. Here is their poster –

No "Beans" about it - our Lunch Ladies are the Best!!

No “Beans” about it – our Lunch Ladies are the Best!!

And last but not least some other helpers at the school – Speech Therapist, Psychologist, and School Nurse:

These helpers are so "Bloomin" Great!!

These helpers are so “Bloomin” Great!!

I enjoyed this opportunity to create beautiful posters to show my daughter’s teacher and other helpers at her school how much we care and appreciate the hard work they do every day in behalf of the children of our school.  I hope maybe this will inspire you in some way  if you are responsible for this kind of project at the school in your neighborhood.

And Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to all you amazing teachers out there!!!

    Thanks for the kind comments that you left on my blog! :) Happy to know that I provided even an ounce of inspiration! I love your ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week (as well as the play on words…who doesn’t love a good play on words??). As a former teacher, I know it would have put a smile on my face. Looking forward to seeing more of what you create!
