Teachers have a lot of influence over our lives.
They teach us the basics, like Maths, English, Science. But that’s not all that they teach us.
We learn by example, so with amazing teachers like these, it’s no wonder we grown up to be kind, functioning adults.
“When I was in 10th grade my PMS cramps were so bad my math teacher noticed. I’d come into class pale, in pain, and exhausted. She let me sleep in the back of the room or curl up on her big soft chair. Then she’d help me out with the math I’d missed. She’s my favorite teacher to this day, and the only one who made math make any sense in my brain. Mrs. Hall the real MVP.”
“When I was in elementary school, I was very sick – in and out of the hospital every few months and I was in for about a week at a time. Every time I was admitted to the hospital, my kindergarten teacher would make sure she would come and visit me and bring me a stuffed animal. Even after I had moved into middle school she never failed to come check on me.”
“Before we left school, our English teacher gave everyone in the class (about 25 of us) a book from her own collection, with a personal message in each one.”
“I used to get really bad anxiety and panic attacks last year, and once I had a panic attack in class and she took me outside the classroom and gave me Oreos and chocolate Yazoo milkshake. It was the purest thing, and I could tell she was stressed herself as it was close to exams, but she still took that time out of teaching to make sure I was OK. She was always there for people to talk to (I went to her crying several times) and encouraged everyone in their work. Literally one of the most dedicated people I’ve met.”
