Rochester Design Center Roc: 3 Reasons To Thank Teachers
Jun 16, 2017
As another school year comes to a close we often forget to thank the individuals responsible for the care and shaping of our children’s minds. Most teachers choose their profession because it is what they absolutely love to do. More over the curriculum, the life lessons that we gain from teachers stick with us through whatever life throws our way.
Thinking back on our educational careers, there are many times where helpful teachers have helped shape who we are today. Here are three things that we so often forget to thank teachers for:
1.Always Keeping a Smile on your face
This article from LifeHack put it best, “Many of us struggle to balance our personal drama with our desk job. Try doing that with 20-40 button pushing kids all day. Talk about resolve.” Teachers have some serious patience, a skill that a lot of the rest of us struggle with.
2. Encouraging through times of failure
Most people can think back on a time when they failed an assignment when they were young. That feeling of “I can’t do it” was likely met with the encouraging sentiments of a teacher letting you know that with a little bit of hard work you would be able to achieve anything you put your mind to.
3. Instilling the value of playing nice with others
We’ve all heard the golden rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. If that quote wasn’t on a poster in your classroom at some point in your education career, you likely heard your teacher recite it over and over again. This value is one most of us will not forget and it’s crucial because it really does take a village.
