Dear Teacher,

Today’s “best of” is made up of some of my favorite posts to write, and include some of my favorite all-time posts.  Every once in a while we need to remember why we do what we do and get excited about it.  We may be on the downside of the teaching roller coaster and a little boost of reminder is all it takes to be headed back up the hill.  That is what these posts are about!  They are supposed to remind you of the awesomeness of what you do so that you want to go out there and be awesome-er!  Here is to being awesome-er!

Some of these are older and you may have definitely missed them.  Check out as many as you can and let us all know your favorite (and why)!

Well, I hope you are “pepped” after reading a few!  Pick your favorite, tell us why it is your favorite, and then go and share the link to it!  You can have more than one favorite, if you want.  🙂

You are awesome!  Today is going to be a great day!  You are going to have a great rest of the week!  You are amazing and are making a difference for the future!  Never forget that!  Keep on teaching, Teacher!

Love, Teacher

Repeat PS from yesterday…I have an idea.  I want to compile stories about teachers who have made a difference in peoples’ lives.  It can be a story or a “Dear Teacher ___________” thank you letter.  I want to share them on here and maybe in a couple of other ways (possibly a book).  If you are interested, email dearteacher@outlook.com and put “Teacher Story” or “Teacher Thank You Letter” in the subject.  Thanks.  I am excited about this project!  (I will post more details about this soon, but please send your story/letter if you can!)

Dear Teacher,

For me, this is the last full week before teachers go back to school for the new year.  I have so much planning and other things that I want to get done!  I think I am going to have to chill it with the blog for this week.  So…this week will be the “Best of Dear Teacher/Love Teacher.”  I am going to post links to several posts from the last three months, and then I am going to give you a challenge.  I want you to pick your favorite, share why it is your favorite, and then share it everywhere that you can (Edmodo, Facebook, Twitter, etc…).

Today is the best of the weekly theme songs.  Because there have not been that many, I am going to share a link to all of them.  Which is your favorite?

My favorite is Stronger.  That song has been in my head a lot since I found out the results of the State Tests.  I know that I can use the unmet expectations as fuel for next year.  It is driving me to work harder to have things together for my students and to use what I have learned to be more effective in years to come.  I am stronger, and I will continue to get stronger!

Which is your favorite?  Why?  Go out and share the encouragement!

You are awesome!  You are amazing!  This year will be the best one yet, I just know it!  Keep on teaching and keep on getting stronger, Teacher!

Love, Teacher
