Thank you, to all of my teachers! You all played a part in helping to form the person who I am today.
You encouraged me to grow.
You encouraged me to take risks.
You encouraged me to be confident.
You encouraged me to try my best at everything I do.
You encouraged me to participate.
You encouraged me to be brave.
Some teachers made me feel like an individual.
Some teachers scared me, but they taught me how to be brave.
Some teachers were good listeners.
I could go on and on about teachers and the important role that they play in the lives of children and teens.
Ok, I might be just slightly biased when it comes to teachers and education as I am a former teacher and so were both of my parents and grandparents! Teachers play such a huge part in our lives. Children spend 10 months of the year with their teachers and their influence affects how our children develop, think, learn and grow as individuals. Yes, I am the first to admit that there are “good” teachers and “bad” teachers, but regardless, we still learn from them. AND, when you look back on your school years, I would like to think that there were many more good than bad experiences with your teachers.
