So you want to get to know the teacher this year, eh?
Or maybe you just want to know what you kind of gift you should be getting for her/him around the holidays?
Whether you’ve signed up to be a room parent or not, teacher questionnaires are a great way to get an idea of what gifts he/she actually wants to receive. When Christmas, teacher birthdays, and Teacher Appreciation week rolls around, you’ll know exactly what to get!

When to Use a Teacher Questionnaire
Hands down, my favorite room mom responsibility is getting the chance to spoil my daughter’s awesome teachers. I typically like to send out a printable teacher survey (some parents call them “All About You” or “Teacher’s Favorite Things” forms) at the beginning of the year.
We have a few printable teacher questionnaire templates here on the blog:
All questionnaires shown above are FREE inside the Resource Library. But, if you don’t have time to send out a printable, an email template is perfect for you!

If there’s no time (or no ink in the printer) for a printable teacher questionnaire, this email template works great in a pinch! In fact, all you need to do is copy and paste this template into your email, fill in the blanks, and send it over to the teacher. Bam. Done. 😎
My name is ________________, and I’m ________________’s mom. I’m so excited to be your room mom this year! Please help us get to know you a little better by filling out this questionnaire when you get a chance!

Feel free to add/delete items from this list to fit your specific teacher as needed. For male teachers, I would replace “Favorite Flower” with “Favorite Sport” and possibly add a line for “T-Shirt Size.”
You can also choose your own questions from this huge list of 101+ favorite things questions.
