The end of the school year is quickly approaching and I have always had trouble coming up with a gift that expressed my appreciation for the teachers in our lives and our children’s lives. Teachers are a wonderful asset  that we so often take for granted. What better way to celebrate them then to design a quote especially for them that suits their personality and says what you have felt all year. 

SimpleStencils are a wonderful way to express your appreciation to your teacher. You can give them the wall decal so that they can install it on their classroom wall, window or chalkboard,  or they can install it at home or in their office where they can see it everyday and know they are appreciated. You can also install these custom laser cut pre-spaced letters to a glass picture frame, canvas, wood plaque, etc. to give them a special wall hanging that will be sure to warm your teachers heart knowing that you made something  especially for them.

SimpleStencils are so easy to apply that kid’s can help from beginning to end to make it a true gift from the heart. From our on-line designer, kids can help design their favorite quote about their teacher or express their own words of appreciation. Installing them on wood, glass, etc. is so easy…let the kids join in. SimpleStencils can create a  moment to teach children the love of giving and art of appreciation.

Visit our Teacher Appreciation Page to see some popular quotes to design or go to our Online Designer where you can custom design your own wall quote that will be sure to please any teacher or educator.  See below for some popular teaching quotes… If you have a special quote that you would like to share please leave it in our comments and we will add it to our wall quote list  to share with everyone.
