I'm making a card for a teacher and on the front cover I wrote You're the best Mrs. Ray. Is that the correct way of using You're?
Yep, that's correct. The apostrophe means that something is missing - this often happens when we speak. Instead of saying 'you are' we prefer the easier-on-the-tongue 'you're'. On the other hand, 'your' is a possessive adjective. This means that it requires a noun. For example, 'your hat'. In spoken language 'your' and 'you're' often sounds the same, though.
