From the looks of it on Facebook, many of you already have kids back in school, or will have kids back in school in the next few weeks so I wanted to post my get to know your teacher questionnaire.
Every year I give these get to know your teacher questions to my child’s teacher to fill out and return to me. It is so helpful to keep on file throughout the school year, especially come the holidays and teacher appreciation week.
For example, one year I learned my child’s teacher’s favorite school day snack was mixed nuts, so I would bring her a little baggie of trail mix on the days I was in the classroom to volunteer.
One of my daughter’s teachers was really into yoga, so I got her a gift card to a local activewear store to treat herself to a new yoga piece.
I would so much rather know exactly what my child’s teacher wants versus taking a gamble and giving them a gift that is just not them.
I also find having this get to know your teacher questionnaire helps me feel more connected to my child’s teacher from the get-go. You can learn a lot about a person from answering questions about their favorite things!
