Dear [Recipients Name],
I am writing to you to express my gratitude for all of the things that you have taught me. You have not only been a great teacher to my classmates and me, but you also have been someone whom we can look to for advice and whom we can turn to when we need help.
We hope that you continue what you are doing, and we do hope to learn from you all valuable life lessons (and academics too, of course!) as we continue to grow up.

Further things to consider when writing appreciation letters to teachers
Appreciation letters are a professional means of communication to express thanks and gratitude towards people for their good deeds. The main purpose of appreciation letters is to sincerely recognize what people have done for you and their positive impact on your work life. Appreciation letters encourage the recipient to work harder and give better results than before. There are endless instances when you can express your appreciation to other people through a letter. Maybe your mentor has provided you with advice on how to go about a project; your manager has made you new connections or a supervisor has recommended you for a promotion; perhaps a colleague has helped you handle a difficult task. An appreciation letter will be a great way to say thank you.
When writing appreciation letters, make sure to express your gratitude in the beginning for the recipient to understand the intention of your letter. Pinpoint specific actions as well as their direct results. Be sure to include what you are sincerely grateful for and why. Keep your letter professional, polite, and to the point. Try to send the letters as soon as possible, when the events are still fresh in both parties' minds.
