A Message Every Teacher Needs to Hear

Thank you.

Two simple words that teachers don’t hear often enough.

Thank you for investing your careers and your lives into the future of our children.

Thank you for the time you spend working on lessons plans, classroom decorations and daily lectures.

Thank you for all the extra time you spend after class with students who need a little more direction.

Thank you for all those late night hours you put in grading papers under your bedside lamp.

Thank you for choosing a profession where you can pour into the lives of others.

Thank you for listening to the kids who just need someone to talk to.

Thank you for all those times you showed up to school early and stayed long after everyone else was gone.

Thank you for all the sacrifices you’ve made for your students.

Thank you for being a teacher.

You are in the trenches doing work that matters, and your effort doesn’t go unnoticed.

Thank you!
