If your students could make you an infographic note of your influence and the difference that you make, I think it would look a lot like this.
I hope that you realize how much you mean to your students, even though they can’t tell you yet. You may never know your true effect, but you are changing lives and futures. Keep fighting. Keep going. Keep teaching!
You are so so awesome! Please remember that you are today. When the going gets tough, awesome is still awesome…and you are awesome! Keep on teaching, you amazing Teacher! Oh, and share this with another teacher that you think could use this message today. Pass on the encouragement!
PS…I am working on a better format of the picture. This is the best I could do this morning because of scanner issues. Sorry!
This is a letter that you may never get, but that does not make it any less true. We often never know our influence. Don’t forget that everything you do matters. Keep not giving up! Keep doing everything you can to reach ever student that you can. You never know how much that they need all that you say and do…even if it just making them complete assignments or retaking a test. It all matters, and it will come back to them…even if you never get to see it or hear about it!
You are awesome! The difference is being made. Keep on being relentless! And, as always, keep on teaching, Teacher!
Your students love you and know that you care. They think you are awesome, but sometimes they just don’t have the words or know-how to let you know. So, because of that, I wrote the note that they feel about you but may never write. They notice all that you do. One day they will look back and see you as one of the main influences in their lives. You may never get this card, but it is very true! Please read and let it be from the students you have struggled with the most to reach, connect, and help them reach some of their potential. Let this be their words to you.
