Teacher Appreciation – Teacher’s Rock!!!

For a printables similar to this one:
Check out our Teacher Appreciation Packet at
Here’s a fun idea for an end of the year gift or a Teacher Appreciation treat.  Collect a list of songs that have the word teacher in them, are about teaching, inspirational, or about children.  Burn those songs on to a CD.  Make a label and insert for the CD and you have a great gift.  I use the CD Stomper System for creating my labels.  I have used it for years and think it is a great program.  Very easy to use.  Below are some links to items I use to make my CD’s.  Also I listed some song ideas for a teacher CD.  I also love to make CD’s each year for my kiddos birthdays, they become a great favor.  Yes, I was one of those people that made mix tapes in college and high school!

Here are some ideas of songs.  I posted on Facebook and people sent me these;
“Time of your life” by Green Day
Hot For Teacher.  Christina Aguilara’s Beautiful. Oh, and Jeremy by Pearl Jam.
Average White Bands “School Boy Crush”.

I Believe I Can Fly – R. Kelley

Schools Out for Summer – Alice Cooper

Teach Your Children—Crosby Stills Nash

What A Wonderful World This Would Be – Sam Cooke

ABC – Jackson Five

Ring Ring Goes the Bell – Chuck Berry
Here is what I ended up with when making my CD.  I did not want to spend extra money buying songs, so I used what I already had.  Also, this is for a catholic school.
