5 Affirmations Every Teacher Needs to Hear [Slideshow]

In the wake of a time in history where shifts are happening faster than you can press the command on your keyboard, we must all maintain our sense of ground. It is essential for us as individuals, as well as our collective existence. One group of people that are used to holding it down for the masses are educators.

Being a daughter of an educator while trekking through the education system myself, my exposure to their reality was up close and personal. I share with you; some takeaways from what I know teachers do not hear enough of – in affirmation form.

1 of

I Am Trusted

Much of the education system measures teacher performance on the performance of students and assessments. While laws and practices vary, it can be easy for teachers to forget just how important their work is. Don't let the path of the system cloud the importance of what you do. The mind is our GR8EST tool. Teachers have the responsibility and significant role of molding minds.

2 of

What I Teach Matters

It can be challenging to stay motivated when students, staff, or anyone else in your working arena are not taking their efforts seriously. Certain subjects lend themselves to the association of "significance." While others are considered lesser in some way, if not physically labeled as such. The truth is, if it can be taught, it's worth teaching.

3 of

I Am Valued

Part of being a teacher is understanding that you will not always get the pat on your back you deserve. Sometimes educators are recognized among their respective platforms, and other times, they aren't. It's essential to remember the value of your impact for your community and beyond, whether you're told or not.

4 of

I Make a Difference

Similar to remembering your value as an asset, is understanding the reach of your impact. An educator's reach goes much farther than they can imagine. Sometimes the effects are not even evident to a student until countless years later, if at all. Perhaps the byproduct of a teacher's service never surfaces as such, going unattributed to the things they've taught. Every teacher deserves to be reminded of the difference they make, even if there isn't glaring evidence.

5 of

I Am Reliable

Teachers tend to worry a lot. Their jobs often go far beyond what they are hired to do. The social and behavioral aspects of teaching cannot be handled well by everyone. It takes a special kind of individual to be reliable in this way.
