Valentine’s Day poems are a great way for your child to show their teacher some love, and to lift her spirits during an otherwise challenging part of the school year.
These Valentine’s Day poems for teachers from students are easy to use in many different ways: try writing one in an old-fashioned Valentine card cut from red construction paper, or on a gift tag for an added touch personal touch.
Kids of all ages can be successful with Valentine’s Day poetry, and your child’s teacher would love to receive sweet words from your little valentine. Having your child write their own is a really fun creative writing assignment if you want to push your child to grow academically.
Encourage your kiddo not to overthink these little Valentine’s Day poems. You don’t need to use poetic devices or figurative language.

Short Valentine’s Day Poems for Teachers from Students
Remember, these poems can serve as a first draft, but be sure to adapt them for your special teacher!
Roses are red,
Violets are blue
There’s no better teacher on Earth
If I had a teacher every year like you
Every year would be blessed
It’s certainly true!
Whether it’s social studies, science, RLA or math,
You always keep me learning on the right path.
Thank you for taking care of me each day,
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I hope it’s the best.
You deserve roses, smiles, candies, and all the rest!
Here’s a Valentine message for my wonderful teacher:
I promise to not behave like a terrible creature.
You deserve a day that is peaceful and sweet,
So I’ll do everything I can to be productive, helpful and neat.
1st Grade has been so fun.
And now that it’s Valentine’s Day,
I want you to know you’re second to none.
You make school a special place to be,
Thank you for taking good care of me.
Hey teacher! What’s 2×2?
I know, it’s me plus you!
Oh wait, that math doesn’t work out.
But as long as I’ve got you, I’ll never pout.
Happy Valentine’s Day, and thanks for teaching me!
You’re a good teacher,
You are smart and kind
Will you say “yes”
and be my Valentine?
There are so many nice friends in our classroom
School is full of learning and fun
But my teacher is my very best friend
So happy Valentine’s Day to my favorite one.
Dear teacher, I’m thankful for you
You have always been gentle, dedicated and true
I hope you have a special Valentine’s Day
And know that you’re making a difference in every way.
To my teacher on Valentine’s Day:
You’re creative, kind and smart,
So please accept this heart.
It’s a sign of my love for you,
Because I’m thankful for everything you do!
Valentine’s Day Poems for Middle and High School Teachers
It’s not a good idea for students to write poems for a middle or high school teacher.
For one, it may not be received well, even if it’s a joke and completely harmless in nature. In the crazy world we live in, even silly poetry could be perceived as an attempt at romantic love. It’s not worth the risk.
Further, even students in the 4th and 5th grade level might find this task to be a bit babyish or embarrassing.
Interactive Tools for Young Poets
If your child is having trouble writing their own poetry, have them brainstorm with some online interactive resources. If your child loves technology, these are fun ways to get started.
One simple example is Rhymer.com. It allows kids to enter a word and find many others that can rhyme with it. Of course, not everyone enjoys rhyming, and there’s nothing wrong with a free verse poem, either!
If you’re interested in acrostic poetry, I have another resource for you. It’s called an Acrostic Poem generator. You can enter your teacher’s name, and they’ll turn it into a silly acrostic poem. It may need some edits, but it’s a great way to get the creative juices flowing.
Next, cut out some red hearts on construction paper and write your acrostic poems on these. You can do them for teachers, TAs, lunch ladies, school principals and more!
Here are some heart templates that will make this go faster and neater.
If your child loves their teacher, the good news is that poetry is an easy way to show it. Put it on greeting cards, make your own, or even jot it on a sticky note on a piece of homework. It’s such a simple, thoughtful way to show you care! And at the end of the day, creating your own Valentine’s day poem is a really fun writing activity for kids.
