Teachers play such a significant role in our lives and we’re very thankful for all that they do. All this month, we’re celebrating Ireland’s amazing teachers and have put together a list of reasons why we believe teachers are so special.
They teach us new things and help us discover our passions.
They challenge us to reach our highest potential and believe we can achieve anything we set our minds to.
They help foster a love for learning by making lessons fun.
No achievement is too small in their classrooms, they celebrate every milestone we reach.
They recognise that every student learns at a different pace, so they go above and beyond to make sure that no one is left behind.
They care about us and push us to achieving our dreams.
Teachers always remember to smile, even when they have piles of homework to correct, hundreds of lessons and activities to prepare, and an overloaded inbox with dozens of emails to check and respond to.
They support us beyond the classroom – they listen to our problems, provide a shoulder to cry, a hand to hold and give great advice to tackle the upsetting situations in our lives.
They are masters of fashion – they manage to wear clothes and shoes that are trendy and comfortable every day of the school year.
They have the ability to leave an everlasting impression on so many of their students.
They know every answer to every question we ask.
They inspire us to be the best version of ourselves.
They make every student feel special.
They can turn anything into a teaching tool, from pencils to paper towels, markers to board wipers.
They are flexible and always have space in their schedule for a student in need.
They are the best performers – they can hold the attention (most of it anyway) of 20+ students for a whole day.
They are great at going undercover – they manage to create a solid mysterious alias on social media so we can’t track them down and spy on their personal life.
They prepare us for the world by teaching us valuable skills through projects and group work.
They are amazing storytellers.
They see everything (thanks to the eyes in the back of their head!).
