Teachers lay the foundation of knowledge and education in every person’s life. They not only educate us, but also teach us the lesson of life. Have you come across an occasion where you are wondering how to thank your teachers through speech? If yes, then we are here to help you. We have shared here long and short thank you speech for teachers, which can be delivered on ceremonies like teacher’s day, etc. You can take examples from our thank you speech for teacher on your farewell day or similar event. The language of these thank you speeches for teachers is very simple and impressive to win the hearts of not only your teachers but of your audience too.

Thank you Speech for Teachers – 1
Respected Principal, Teachers and My Dear Friends!
First of all, I would like to welcome you all to the occasion of our farewell day. I have been given this opportunity to host the program today. Well, this is a very emotional moment for all of us as we are getting promoted to a new life on the one hand; whereas on the other hand we are also leaving behind our most favourite place, i.e. our school where we spent the most significant growing years of our lives.
I would like to utilise this moment to thank all our teachers who prepared us for the world outside. Our teachers have been an epitome of strength and a great pillar of support to all of us. They have been as strict as father and as loving as mother, equally caring like a friend, a strict disciplinarian and yet always so approachable. Our teachers are wonderful human beings because they have accepted all of us with all the weaknesses and have worked upon us to overcome those weaknesses.
I still remember, I joined this school in Standard V, when I used to be the shy and introvert person. I faced difficulties in speaking in public and today, I am standing here to deliver the farewell speech. This is all because of the great and loving teachers I came across in this school. They never left any stone unturned to change my personality and attitude. Needless to say, they have worked on me even more to prepare me for the outside world. A teacher is essentially a mentor and a role model for the student. The student believes in the teachers and every word they say. They are noble and selfless people coz they accept each of their student wholeheartedly without any bias and favouritism.
My parents always say, that school period is the golden period in everyone’s life and I realize it now when I stand amidst all my favourite teachers and fellow friends to bid goodbye for a newer world.
I would especially take out some moment from this event to thank Ma’m X and Sir A for being my guide always and showing me the right direction and path to walk on. It was more difficult for me than the other students to accomplish the projects and tasks you assigned to us. You both have spent extra hours and shown special care to me in order to prepare me for the ‘real world’. I still remember the day in Class XI, when I had given up and lost all hopes; both of you encouraged me in your own special way and shared examples of great people who failed in the beginning and later became famous people.
You taught us to be persistent and chase the dream without compromising on small issues; that was one of several lessons I have learnt from all of you. I am sure, all my friends would like to share the word of gratitude with our loving teachers, as we have always been very grateful to all of you.
I thank all the teachers, Principal and all other staff on behalf of the fellow students and myself.
Thank you for being an indispensable part of our lives!

Respected Principal, Respected Teachers and My Dear Fellow Students!
Today is a very emotional moment for us as it’s the last day of our school and after this event most of us will choose different paths in life. This event is organised annually, giving an opportunity to each one of us to thank each other, exchange contact details and promise each other to stay connected as long as possible; but I am a bit more lucky to get an opportunity to host this programme.
This is a special occasion for me and I am going to utilise this platform to thank the entire institution for nurturing me with so much of love and care. I would especially like to thank the teachers who have worked so hard towards educating us and transforming us from a raw to a mature and sensible individual.
I know, my life is going to change soon as I am moving to a new world entirely, where I’ll have to make my own decisions and there will be none to guide me with so much of intensity as my teachers have guided me so far. But I am sure, the lessons that I’ve learnt from my teachers here would remain forever with me.
A special thank to the Principal Sir, who trusted me and allowed me to take admission in this school even though I was late by almost 2 months due to some family mishap. This school for me is like my first home as I have spent most of the hours of my day here.
I can’t thank enough Miss A for taking care of me like a mother does to her child. There have been times when I’ve lost the hopes and she has scolded me like a mother, supported me like a friend and guided me like a mentor. Ma’am, you have not only built up my confidence, but have also taught me to be strong. You have prepared me for all the future battles and struggles. My life with you and under you has taken the best shape it ever could and I am going to miss you forever.
I would also like to thank our PT Sir, who has been very particular about the physical fitness and would not let us miss the class. Sir, though you have taught us the benefit of healthy living and physical fitness, but the best lesson I’ve learnt from you is about the time management.
While I’ve got the occasion to thank all my teachers, I can’t miss this moment to thank Miss B, our Arts teacher. For a bland person like me, she introduced ‘arts’ as sunshine. I could literally never even hold a colour pencil right, while she pushed me to win the drawing competition in standard VIII. Truly thanks, Ma’am.
This entire school is a treasure of knowledge for me and I’ve cherished each and every moment I’ve spent here. Though I am going to be physically away, I will always carry in my heart, the love, care, attention, blessing and teachings I’ve got from here.
Once again, thank you to all my teachers!
Thank You ABC School
Thank you Speech for Teachers – 3
Good morning respected principal, teachers and my dear friends.
I, on behalf of the entire school management welcome you all to this special ‘Teacher’s Day’ assembly session today.
Thank you so much to all the teachers present here in this school. We as students have been able to uplift ourselves just because of your love, care, guidance and support. Each of our teachers has been the motivation spirit for us in all respects. Being a teacher is a big time job. It is not limited to only that few hours of teaching in the classroom; it is much more beyond those hours. From preparing the teaching contents (before coming to the classrooms) to prepare the test papers; and then to conduct special mentoring sessions for their students. Everything that a teacher does is commendable with due respect to the efforts they put in.
Being a grown up, now I have realized that teachers play a very crucial role in the child’s life. Many major lessons of life beyond the defined syllabus lessons and scripted books are taught by our teachers only. They help us in building our friendship skills, our communication skills, our writing skills, our overall gesture and presentation skills, etc. Thanks to all the teachers for making us learn the tactics of overall existence.
For any school or educational centre to exist, it is very important for the teachers to be present there. Without teachers, there is nobody to dedicatedly execute the education practically for which these entities are built. For the morale upbringing of the child, presence of teacher in the life is very important. Teachers help in building the child effectively and efficiently.
We as students owe a huge amount of love, care, affection and respect towards each and every teacher that has ever been present in our life. I am obliged to have witnessed the presence of such great entities in my life. Since my kids care school till this last session of class 12th, I feel so content and complete when I look back on what I have learnt. This learning is much more than the scripted books.
The courage and confidence that’s built in me today is because of the wonderful teachers that have been a part of my journey. Thank you teachers acknowledging your efforts and dedication towards the upbringing of a child are completely incredible. My teachers have guided me like my parents and supported me like my friends. Because of which, they today hold such a special place in my heart.
Thank you teachers for making me a citizen that inherits a true character. This has been possible because of the learning given by you. I respect you all for all the deeds that you have done. Trust me existence of educational institutions without you people is just a hollow building, and I am sure the school management agrees with my thought. A teacher is by all means the most essential element in the schools. Thank you so much to each of the teacher.
Thank you everybody for being a part of this session. Please always stay connected to your teachers as they surely have something excellent to make you learn. Thank you!
Thank you Speech for Teachers – 4
Good morning to all. It is a pleasure seeing you all gathered here.
Today, through my speech I would like share a token of thanks to all the teachers that have been a part of my life.
Each teacher deserves tremendous love, care, affection and respect. We all should acknowledge the importance of presence of a teacher in our lives. They have made us capable of who we are today, they have built our character and have made us realize the path towards our dreams and towards the ultimate success. Our teachers have enabled us to identify the things that are good for us, they have helped us in knowing which path should we choose for.
Teachers are the strongest pillars on which all these educational institutions are built. It is a great achievement on being a teacher. You as individuals teach so many students and add on to the upliftment of the society by improving the literacy rate of the country. Teachers are a perfect blend of theoretical (educational) and practical (life) learning.
Thank you teachers for being the most essential inspirational source that has enabled us to be the person of dignity. You have built our character and have showcased us the path of success. You have try inspired each one of us to have dreams and have a focused approach in achieving these dreams and goals.
You as teachers have helped us brighten our future and made a person of true character because of the guidance that you have given us throughout our journey. You have nurtured us with the education and all the motivational learning. You as teachers have the power to mold the generations and make them understand the value of everything. Teachers tend to have a great emotional impact on the students due to which the learning effect from teachers is more intact and effective.
Thank you teachers for all the time that you spent on the students. Each of your small effort has made us capable of leading a great life today. Words are few but feelings are limitless to express our gratitude towards your efforts. You as teachers nurture so many children and work towards inspiring and motivating them for their own self. Presence of teacher is one’s life makes it more meaningful and drives his or her intentions on to the right path.
Though a single day has been dedicated or announced to praise the efforts of teachers; bit I would like to say you all that this entity ‘Teacher’ deserves the round of applause and appreciation every second. They are the ones who built the nation’s literacy gap and nurture the great citizens of the country.
Thank you teachers for existing in our lives and making it meaningful. You have been the parent at school. Your presence in our lives has shaped our future for the betterment of our and the overall country. Thank you for each and every thing that you have done.
Thank you! And, also a big thank to the entire audience for hearing me and also sharing your views. Thank you!

This week, our nation recognizes and honors you for your tireless efforts on behalf of our students, everywhere from small towns and suburbs, to rural communities and Tribal lands, to big cities. Teachers have one of the most challenging and fulfilling jobs—literally shaping and changing lives. Especially during Teacher Appreciation Week, we celebrate and thank you for the vital role that you play in supporting students and strengthening the future of our nation.
Long hours and hard work go into designing challenging lessons, guiding students through their learning, providing feedback to students, engaging with parents and families, collaborating with colleagues, reflecting on your instruction, staying abreast of research and changes in content and pedagogy, and leading in your schools.
But much of the work you do also is about the intangible—it’s about fostering that almost indescribable, and yet unmistakable, spark between you and your students.
It’s there when you see the potential in every student who walks through your door, even when he may not yet recognize his own gifts. It’s there when you notice and attend to the child quietly sitting in your class, hoping no one will notice that her world has fallen apart at home. It’s there when you offer a listening ear and assistance to the student who has no place to call home, who lacks a support system beyond the schoolyard, or who simply hasn’t found her way yet. It’s there when you feed the child who is hungry, when you check in on the student who has missed school, and when you build your classroom into a safe community that is full of the wonder and joy of learning. You recognize that every child has a unique set of skills and talents to share with the world and you strive to help each of them engage in real, rigorous, and relevant learning that can set them on a path to realizing their potential. You do whatever it takes to be champions of our students and to prepare them for the incredible opportunities and achievements you know lie ahead—if we can provide them with a world-class education.
Each day in your classrooms, you work to ensure ALL of your students make progress toward their growth and mastery goals. Some results of that work are immediate—the look in a child’s eye when she has an “a-ha” moment and grasps a concept, the interest a student shows in his science fair project, or the scholarship a student earns because of a prize-winning essay.
But, a great deal of what you do also is having a much more long-term effect, in ways that may not be apparent right away.
You are helping to empower students with the strong character traits that they will use in their daily decision making. You are inspiring life-long learners, equipping citizens to participate more fully in our democracy, and, most importantly, you are giving students the freedom to choose—making it possible for them to have limitless options for their life paths and careers.
Teaching is the profession that launches every career. Thank you for sharing with your students your passion for world languages, music, literature, math, science, theater, history, and myriad other subjects. Thank you for empowering our youth and for furthering social justice by never being satisfied until every child has access to an excellent education. You are helping your students to develop an appreciation for a diverse society and a desire to create a more just world. Thank you for doing this vital work without expectation for thanks; but know, too, that you deserve it, and that the Obama administration and I are invested in lifting up and honoring teaching. We understand that teacher voice is a crucial part of conversations that impact your classroom and your profession, and we are committed to ensuring you are supported so you can do your best work on behalf of our children every day. We believe strongly that teachers should have a voice in the policy decisions that affect you and your students.
For me, the importance of teachers is personal. My own teachers saved my life—I lost both of my parents by the time I was 12 years old, and it was New York City Public School teachers who provided me with the love, support, safety, and skills that laid the foundation for the many opportunities I’ve been fortunate to have throughout my career in education. Their positive impact inspired me to become a high school social studies teacher and a middle school principal, and those experiences inform my work each day as U.S. Secretary of Education.
I’m grateful for my own teachers, the Maryland public school educators who inspire my daughters daily, and all of you for doing this incredibly challenging, but vitally important work for our nation’s children. Thank you.
With immense gratitude,
John B. King, Jr.
