Inspiration for Teachers

For those who are called to teach, teaching is not merely a job that provides a paycheck. It is passion. It is a part of who you are and even when you are not in the classroom, you are still a teacher. Your true joy rests not in material things, but in those ah-ha moments when you help a child find understanding. While you could do without budget cuts and larger class sizes, you accept them for what they are and enter the classroom each day with a sense of purpose and expectancy. You are a facilitator, a mentor, a friend – you are a teacher.

As the school year begins, be inspired and mindful of the amazing potential within you for nurturing change in the lives of your students. When the budget cuts and district troubles begin to take their toll, step back, regroup and return with renewed dedication. Sometimes all it takes to come back to a point of hope is a simple saying or words of inspiration. We compiled some inspirational quotes just for you, so when those moments of discouragement happen this school year, you can reach out and find comfort in the words of others. Have a really good school year and know that we will be with you every step of the way.
