WHY YOU SHOULD APPRECIATE YOUR TEACHERS

What better time to reflect upon the contributions your teachers have made than the end of another school year! After all, they have spent countless hours with a special group of students for the past nine months. Not only do teachers spend a ton of energy preparing and delivering valuable content-related lessons, but they also play an important role in shaping their students’ lives. Their reward is to see the intellectual growth and overall maturation of their students.

One of the most straightforward roles of teachers is to further your education. Not only do they teach interesting content, but they challenge you and always see your potential. They encourage you every step of the way during your pursuit of knowledge. Good teachers push you to work independently and to think critically. Looking back, sometimes favorite projects are those that you thought were close to impossible, but in the end, gave you a true sense of accomplishment. The best teachers push you beyond your perceived capabilities. They listen, observe, and find alternative ways to explain concepts that are confusing. They teach you how to do something in more than one way so you have a toolbox of strategies. These dedicated teachers strive to make learning fun too. They come up with creative ways to present content and share their passion for the subject matter they teach. Overall, they inspire you to be an active learner.  

Often, even more than appreciating the academic aspect of teachers, students value the support and guidance that teachers give them about life. Childhood is an impressionable time, and it is often teachers who give students positive reinforcement and kudos for their hard work. They make students feel valued. Teachers are frequently described as second parents, as they act as role models for students and educate them on life lessons. They help students align their moral compass and teach them open-mindedness. They encourage students to appreciate differences and to learn from others. Good teachers encourage cooperation and teamwork. They challenge students to become a better version of themselves. There is no doubt that teachers truly care about their students. 

Teachers play a pivotal role in students’ lives. They exert a tremendous amount of energy toward providing the best education possible for a new group of students each year. As another school year winds down, take time to reflect upon what your teachers have done for you and how they have helped to shape the person you are.
