Dear Teacher Daily: The Choice of Today

Dear Teacher,

I am writing this using my phone, so please excuse any typos!  šŸ™‚

So… yesterday happened.  Good or bad –  awesome or awful -invigorating or trying – it happened.  Chances are it was the latter of each of those choices.  And here you are today needing to follow that up.

What are you going to do today?

I know you.  You are a great teacher.  You are going to make a choice and you are going to set a goal – you will make today at least a little bit better than yesterday…and knowing you, it will probably be a lot of bit better!

You can’t let your yesterdays determine your todays…but you can use them as an inspiration to drive you to better things each day.  And that is what we have to do as teachers in order to survive!

No day will be perfect, that’s for sure.  We are normally pretty far from that.  But everyday can be just a little better than the day before…and this is a pretty realistic goal.

Smile at yesterday or brush it off.  Pick yourself up and look today square in the eyes and determine to make it better.  And then the only thing left to do is to be the amazing you that you are and let your awesome show!

Today will be better today, Teacher!  You’ve got this.  You are a great teacher, and every day is a better one for those kiddos in your classroom.  Today will be great because you’re a great teacher!  You rock!  Keep on teaching!

Love, Teacher

PS…So writing these on my phone is hard…to find out why I have to, see yesterday’s post.  For you chance to help me get back on my normal posting an encouraging feet, please check this out:  Thanks!



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