{Free Printable} Simple Teacher Gift – Why God Made Teachers Poem

What does a teacher really want for an end of the year gift? I’m sure they will tell you that anything is lovely, BUT, we opted for this simple poem, gift card (to the movies and Sonic) and a note. In my opinion they have enough plants, lotions, crazy Pinterest teacher crafts and apples!

What do you give for teacher gifts? Leave a comment below.

I do not speak Spanish. Google Translate and a neighbor help me translate so we could give a copy to the Spanish teacher. If you see any corrections let me know!

Note to the teacher from our 3 year old

Our daughter also made a card for each teacher and then I wrote a note based on what she said (she’s 3). I love her!

“My mommy helped me write the words :)

Ms. {Teacher}-

I made a picture for you. I want to be a teacher, an astronaut, explorer, monkey and elephant when I get big. Thanks for playing games with me and teaching me. Your favorite color is green.

Love, C”

p.s. I realize prayer in schools is a touchy subject. We go to a Christian preschool so this was a great gift for us. Also, I would love to link to the original Why God Made Teachers by Kevin William Huff – write a comment below if you know how to give him credit! I saw a copy in our church nursery and loved it so I wrote it down and made this printable.

Why God Made Teachers

by Kevin William Huff

When God created teachers,
He gave us special friends
To help us understand His world
And truly comprehend
The beauty and the wonder
Of everything we see,
And become a better person
With each discovery.

When God created teachers,
He gave us special guides
To show us ways in which to grow
So we can all decide
How to live and how to do
What’s right instead of wrong,
To lead us so that we can lead
And learn how to be strong.

Why God created teachers,
In His wisdom and His grace,
Was to help us learn to make our world
A better, wiser place.

 Spanish Version (rough translation)

¿Por qué Dios hizo a los maestros
Original By Kevin William Huff

Cuando Dios creó a los maestros,
Él nos dio amigos especiales
Para ayudarnos a entender su mundo
Y en verdad comprender
La belleza y la maravilla
De todo lo que vemos,
Y ser una mejor persona
Con cada descubrimiento.
Cuando Dios creó a los maestros,
Él nos dio unas guías especiales
Para mostrarnos formas para crecer
Así que todos podemos decidir
¿Cómo vivir y cómo hacerlo
Lo que es correcto en vez de mal,
Para guiarnos para poder guiar
Y aprender a ser fuerte.
¿Por qué Dios creó a los maestros,
En su sabiduría y su gracia,
Era para ayudarnos a aprender a hacer
de nuestro mundo un lugar mejor, más sabio.
