5 Motivational Quotes for Teachers

Hello teachers! My guess is that you came to this blog post because you need a little pick-me-up.  It's that time in the year when things start to fall into place and settle down, but at the same time, it starts to become a challenge to get out of that warm bed and take on the day!  I wanted to take time to say: 1. You aren't alone. and 2. You are making a difference.  I hope these quotes below remind you why you became a teacher in the first place and why you should persevere through the cool fall months! 

THIS is the best feeling! When you can teach a lesson so powerfully that your students don't even know you're there when engaged in the activity.  It's a proud, empowering moment for any teacher.  That can be YOU today.  You can be that teacher that gives your students the tools to work independently and collaboratively! 

You don't have to be that teacher that says, "okay, yes, I'll teach to the test just like the state wants me to."  Instead, you can be that teacher that says, "I'm going to do what's best for my students and teach something that makes them think outside the box and prepares them for life after high school."  Make it happen-- transcend the accepted educational methods! 

I think every teacher has heard this quote before.  However, each time you read it, I hope it hits home.  We truly do touch the future.  Something you teach or do today could change the future.  We can either make the future darker with negativity or brighter with positivity.  Which will you choose? 

This is my favorite quote.  We all have those students that are ultimately trying to drive us out of the teaching profession; but the truth is this: those students need us the most.  The sooner we can find the positive in every single student, the sooner our teaching outlook will change. Start today!

Will you be a mediocre, good, superior, or great teacher today? 

I truly hope these quotes helped brighten your day! Now, go out there and continue making a difference in the lives of our youth.  You can do this.
