It is Friday! You have survived the week. No, you did not survive it…you thrived in it. You made a difference in the lives of your students, even if they don’t know it yet or not. You inspired. You set mental fires. You perspired…but it was worth it. You got your students to think…and got them thinking more on their own. Your students learned because your taught them how to learn. You taught your heart out, and now your students can even teach others.
You hit milestones with somestudents. You crossed educational thresholds with other students. Some students reached the benchmarks set…some students surpassed them. Because of this week, some of your students will never be the same. Because of you. You taught them to think, learn, love others, have compassion, believe in themselves, and the goodness that lies in the hard work it takes to reach goals.
Teacher, you did not just make it through the week, you made the week yours! You took the week, you tamed it, and you made something awesome out of it. Celebrate! It is Friday! You came, you taught, you conquered! You awesomed the heck out of this week!
You are so awesome! You are doing a great job! Your work with your students DOES matter, and don’t ever forget that. You are a difference maker!
Keep on teaching, Teacher! I believe in you!
PS… Here is a little video I found this morning. I hope it inspires you like it inspired me.
