Note to Teacher – September 9th, 2016

Dear Teacher,

I want to sincerely thank you for all that you do.  Really, seriously, and with deep gratitude, I thank you!

You work so hard…and I am not talking about the paperwork and data collection side of things…I mean the real work of teaching.  You work your heart out to reach your students and take them one step closer to the people that they can be one day.

You think.  You plan.  You care.

You spend your own money.

You search for the right ideas to reach each student.

You make phone calls home.

You help students work through behaviors.

You set up scenarios for students to be self-motivated and learn from mistakes.

You look for teachable moments in the day and jump on them to make sure lessons are learned.

You go long periods of time without a chance to use the bathroom.

You collaborate with other teachers.

You plan field trips.

You do whatever it takes to reach each and every student.

You care.


For all of these things I thank you.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

You are so amazing.  And you ARE making a difference.  Keep on teaching and doing the awesome you do every day!

  1. As always, you lift me up. Started a rough year with a steep learning curve (new position, different population demographic, etc.), and I need all the emotional support I can get. (15 year veteran); thank you for helping to keep my wheels on.

  2. Good morning,

    Just wanted to say THANK YOU for all of the encouraging notes. Thank you for taking your time to help and inspire all teachers.

    Enjoy your day!
