Some days are just long when you are a teacher. This year, the pandemic has made many of our days long and have us all questioning if we are doing everything we need to for our students. These are the days that we could use some inspirational Teacher quotes.
As a student teacher supervisor, I have watched student teachers work in classrooms that change by the day. One day face to face, next day virtual. Kids in school part time and virtual the other days. Teaching both to classroom kids and kids at home. If it is hard for me to keep up with their schedule, I cannot imagine their days! A special thank you to the Cooperating Teachers for volunteering to mentor in these crazy times.
So, for Teacher Appreciation Week check out the teacher quotes below that remind us why we teach. Consider it a couple of minutes of self-care. We know we teach because we love helping kids but sometimes a few nice words can make our day. Sometimes it is just a few words that remind us WHY we became teachers.
