Dear Teacher,

You may have had a great day yesterday.  It might have been a bad one.

You might be facing difficulty at school today.  You might be looking forward to the best day ever.

You might be energized from break.  You might be completely worn down from the school year.

I don’t know where you lie in the the spectrum of these between the extremes, but I do know one thing.

You are a great teacher.

It doesn’t always feel that way.  As a matter of fact, it seems like the curve balls of life want you to believe anything but that is true.

But it is true.

Teaching is hard, and getting harder, but you are good at it.  You have a knack for it.  You are skilled.  You have gifts and talents that make you one of the best.

Don’t listen to the doubt.

Trust.

You know what you are doing.

Have faith.

You make good decisions for the betterment of your students.

Know.

All difficulties seem in the distant past when what you are doing for the sake of students pans out in the end.

Rest.

You can rest assured of the fact that you are a good teacher.  Cling to that for dear life.

Hold on.

Things always get better.  You know this.

Be.

Be that excellent teacher that you are.  Stand firm.  Keep fighting.  Keep going.

Teach.

Do what you are meant to do…and be great at it!  You’ve got this!

Teacher, you are amazing.  You are awesome!  Do not let the world around you beat you up.  We go through storms as teachers, but we can ride them out.  Never lose faith in what you are meant to do.  You are a teacher.  You are meant to teach.  Hang on, Friend, it will get better!  Keep going, fighting, and never stop teaching!

Love, Teacher
