Thank a Teacher This Month!

0 October 6, 2014

  October 5th is World Teacher Day! 

TeacherDid you have a favorite teacher when you were in school? That one person who encouraged you and inspired you to be more than you ever thought you could be. You know…that teacher who taught you those life lessons that textbooks simply can’t impart. We all had those teachers who were so dedicated to our education, causing us to never forget them. October 5th is World Teachers Day. In honor of these significant individuals, let’s consider the importance of the role they play in young people’s lives. Children spend more time at school than they do at home. This means the people they encounter at school make a drastic impact in their lives. Teachers are not simply teaching lessons each day. They’re helping children develop socially and emotionally, as well. What a tremendous responsibility!

Teachers are self-esteem builders.

One of the biggest things that teachers impact is student self-esteem. Reinforcing self-esteem in the classroom is one of the most important things teachers do. Teachers communicate encouragement and positive feedback to their students, which is particularly vital to the success of struggling students.

Teachers are life skills instructors.

Each day in the classroom, teachers divulge life skills to students that are essential for future success. From completing a resume to appropriate behavior in social situations, teachers are preparing children for real-world events they will face in the future.

Teachers are motivators.

Teachers motivate students to become better than they think they are capable of becoming.  On a daily basis, teachers are reiterating the importance of discipline, responsibility, commitment, and always trying your very best at everything you do. These are values that are crucial to success. In honor of these selfless educators, click here, like our page, and  post your selection on our Facebook page to nominate your favorite teacher (yours or your child’s) to win a Pedicure at The Apothecary Spa. Teachers deserve some relaxation, too! We will select the winner at the end of the month and announce it in next month’s newsletter.
