12 Days of Christmas Kindness – Day Eleven
It’s Day Eleven of 12 Days of Christmas Kindness, giving simple and doable ideas for reaching out to others during the Christmas season. If you’re just joining us, catch up on each day here.
For Day Eleven, let’s take a teacher down memory lane.
Hunt down a former teacher on Facebook and tell them one thing you remember most about them. Or maybe they are still teaching in a school close by. Jot a quick note of appreciation and drop it off at the school office. You can even use one of the pre-printed or blank cards featured here to help you deliver your sentiment.

Now let’s go scatter some Christmas kindness and be sure to come back tomorrow!
Great Idea. I have a very special chorus teacher who made such a positive impact on my life!
I asked my kids, who are in college, do also do this with their elementary teachers. They are connected via social media with so many so won’t be too hard!
I did this act of kindness, and what a fun way to walk down memory lane!
As a teacher, I love this!!
As a teacher, this means so much to me. There is seriously nothing kinder and sweeter than an old student bringing me a note saying how much they like me and how I’m their favorite. Teachers can get so defeated and wonder sometimes if they really are making a difference. Telling an old teacher thank you will go a long way!!
This one is great and may require sending the note as not too many of my teachers are on Facebook. So thought about it and I am going to take a different approach and thank my Mom. She was my eight grade math teacher and of course taught me about life all the years!! I would not be who I am without her!!!
I completely lost contact with all my school contacts from elementary school, so I did this with my high school band director. He likes keeping up to date with us!
This one is a little harder
I reversed this one and since I was a teacher I sought out a former student
I have not been able to “track down” my favorite teachers :(
Great idea! I see a lot of teachers in the community I live in. Will start to do this
What a great idea! I’m sure teachers would love to hear how they are still remembered even by adults.
I like how these challenges think about all the people that often are forgotten in our lives.
Teachers are so critical to our success. I remember some of mine so fondly!
Great idea. Teachers are awesome.
Teachers are special……great idea.
