Dear Teacher Daily – A Letter From That “One Student”


Dear Teacher,

You are passionate about your students and about teaching, there is no denying that.  For that reason, when you have a REALLY challenging student, it is a struggle.  You want to reach that student, but you also don’t want to sacrifice the other students and their learning environment.  It is a mental and emotional tug-of-war that you deal with day in and day out.  You do what you can and play each day by ear.

And you are TIRED!

Well, I just want to encourage you to keep it up!  Don’t give up!  Keep making those hard choices every day!  We both know it will make a difference one day for that student(s)…even if it is in the far future and you will never know.

To help you do this and stay inspired to keep going, I went into the future and got that student to write you a letter.  What, you didn’t know I had a time machine?  🙂

I’m attaching the letter to the end of this note.  I hope it reminds you why you do the things you do.  You are awesome and REALLY ARE making a difference!  Don’t give up!  Keep on teaching, Teacher!

Love, Teacher

Letter from Student (that you may never get): What you never knew…


Dear Teacher,

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!

Love, Teacher
