Teacher questionnaires are such a great way to get to know the teacher at the beginning of the year. In fact, spoiling awesome teachers is my absolute favorite thing to do as a room parent.
With that in mind, I always want to give gifts that the teacher actually wants and/or needs.
Pin it for later:
A Teacher Questionnaire Just for Male Teachers?
After putting together my first teacher questionnaire, I realized it was a bit on the girly side. Foliage and flowers, oh my!
But in my defense, I made the initial Q&A form for my daughter’s teacher when she was just starting elementary, and we all know it takes the patience of a woman to teach the youngest students. Hehe.
Last week, I volunteered to substitute for a 3rd grade class, and it hit me.
I might be Room Mom for Mr. Stowers in a couple of years. I need a teacher gift questionnaire for Mr. Stowers. I have to make it. ASAP.
And I need to put it online for all the other male teachers out there. A! S! A! P!
They need this.
Heck, we need this because who in the world knows what to get a male teacher for his birthday?? I mean, the guys in my life have interests that vary lightyears apart, so I almost feel like I should make a questionnaire for them when Christmas comes around.
That’s kind of a good idea, actually.
We should brainstorm like this more often.
Anyway, here’s the form! You can get it for free inside the Resource Library. Enter your email below to get access.
This All About You printable PDF is completely free (as-is) inside the Resource Library. But if you’re wanting to customize the questionnaire, we recently added EDITABLE versions of this form to our editable questionnaire bundle! Check it out:
Sometimes it’s nice to customize the questions and tailor them to the individual teacher. For example, if you know your child’s new teacher LOVES dogs, but you’re not sure what kind or how many dogs he actually has, you can create a line for that!
What to Do Next
Once you get the teacher’s answers, you can send this questionnaire to the class parents along with your Room Mom introduction letter. If you don’t have a list of parent emails, use this template to get them fast!
I like to include the teacher questionnaire with my room mom introduction letter because I feel it helps me break the ice with parents. I don’t enjoy sending emails talking about MYSELF, so attaching this PDF to the email gives me something else to talk about.

I hope this post helped you get to know your child’s teacher better! Whether he has an alpha or sigma male personality, the form is simple enough to work for all the brave men who teach our kids in the classroom.
Feel free to email me at email@example.com with your room parenting questions or suggestions for items to add to our next form. Also, I would LOVE to hear about your teacher Q&A. 🙂
See you later, room mom!
