Who You Also Are…

Dear Teacher,

You are a teacher.

You are strong, brave, and bold.

You are a teacher.

You work with confidence, conviction, and wisdom.

You are a teacher.

You wear yourself and pour yourself out for the sake of your students.

You are a teacher.

You are also human.

Don’t be afraid to hurt.  Don’t be ashamed to rest.  Don’t feel bad to take  break.

You are also a friend.  You are also a family member.  You are a son or daughter, you are a mom or dad, you are a grandma or grandpa, you are a brother or sister, and you are a relative.  Don’t forget that time with those you care about is equally as important as school.

You are you.  You need time to be you.  You need to remember who you are.  You need to also live as you.

You are a teacher, this is true.  Don’t forget that you are a lot of other things, too.

This weekend take time to be more than a teacher.  It is okay.  Being the other things will help you be a better teacher.  I promise!

You are so awesome.  I believe in you so much!  You are really amazing.  Keep on teaching, Teacher!

Love, Teacher



I am a middle school teacher who lives in the upstate of South Carolina.
