Message For Teachers Essay

It is not an exaggeration to say that a great teacher can change a student’s life. There are an endless amount of stories that attest to the benefits of a strong relationship between an educator and pupil.

As some of the most influential role models for developing students, teachers are responsible for more than just academic enrichment. If you want to be a great educator, you must connect with your pupils and reach them on multiple levels, because the best teachers are committed to their students’ well-being both inside and outside the classroom. By forging strong relationships, educators are able to affect virtually every aspect of their students’ lives, teaching them the important life lessons that will help them succeed beyond term papers and standardized tests. 

It is not always easy to change a student’s life, which is why it takes a great teacher to do so. Some just need an extra push like the student whose math grade is just a few points shy from the A that will give them a 4.0 GPA; others may be going through something troubling in their personal lives and need someone to talk to. Whatever the student needs to help them excel, a life-changing teacher will be there for them.

While you will spend your entire career learning the different ways you can change your students’ lives, here are three aspects that are directly affected by great teachers:

1. Education

A great teacher makes learning fun, as stimulating, engaging lessons are pivotal to a student’s academic success. Some students who are more prone to misbehavior, truancy or disengagement are more dependent on an engaging teacher. Making your classroom an exciting environment for learning will hold the students’ fascination, and students learn best when they are both challenged and interested. It’s part of motivating students, which may not be easy, but which will benefit students immeasurably in the long run.

2. Inspiration

Have you ever had a teacher who inspired you to work harder or pursue a particular goal? Were you inspired to become an educator by one of your own great teachers?

Inspiring students is integral to ensuring their success and encouraging them to fulfil their potential. Students who are inspired by their teachers can accomplish amazing things, and that motivation almost always stays with them. Inspiration can also take many forms, from helping a pupil through the academic year and their short-term goals, to guiding them towards their future career. Years after graduation, many working professionals will still cite a particular teacher as the one who fostered their love of what they currently do and attribute their accomplishments to that educator.

3. Guidance

Teachers can also be a trusted source of advice for students weighing important life decisions. Educators can help their pupils pursue higher education, explore career opportunities and compete in events they might otherwise have not thought themselves able to. Students often look to their teachers as mentors with experience and knowledge, and, as an educator, you will almost definitely be asked for advice at some point during your career.

Did you know that one in four students drops out of school or that every nine seconds, another student drops out? Dropping out is a decision that students won’t likely come to you about, but an adept teacher can notice the indications that a student is struggling and intervene before it’s too late. Aside from educating them on the hard facts about dropping out, teachers can also help assess the problem and figure out an alternative. In such situations, teachers undoubtedly have the ability to change the lives of students.

Each Teacher Is A Flower

by Ihsana Shirazi
(England)

These teacher appreciation messages prove that students are very grateful to their teachers. Perhaps these words to describe a teacher, based on a metaphor that teachers are flowers, means that teachers help their students to bloom!


Life is a beautiful garden;
Each teacher is a flower,
Who fills our lives with knowledge
And teaches us every hour.

They fill our lives with knowledge,
Smiles and patience too;
Your flower is very treasured;
It's special just like you.

You're always there to teach
Learning that has no end,
Believing in my dreams
As teacher and also friend.

Thank You, Teachers

by Chhimi S Wangmo

This thank you note for a teacher shows just how wide the influence of teachers can be on a receptive student. For some teachers, "thank you" really seems inadequate for the amount of gratitude we feel.

Thank you, teachers, for everything,
for being nice and kind to us,
for always staying near us.

Thank you for teaching us good new things,
for making us new, better people,
helping to erase the old, bad parts of us.

Thank you for making us comfortable and happy,
for being friends with us,
for sharing your past.

I know my simple words, "Thank you,"
are not enough for all you have done,
but know that I am really very grateful to you.
Thank you very much for everything.

Thank you, teachers.

Tell Your Teachers Now!

This is like a high school assignment on an enjoyable topic, an essay on memories of school and favorite teachers. This lengthy group of words, sayings and phrases about teachers evokes nostalgia for our own school days. Do you share any of these kinds of memories?


Most of my teachers have faded from memory, so much that I couldn't write a teacher poem about them. I remember a few names, but not much about the teachers themselves. I remember a high school teacher, Mrs. Dowling, who taught advanced placement English, because I recall her requiring us to memorize a passage from Shakespeare. I memorized some lines from Macbeth. I still remember them:

I sure don't agree with that passage! Signifying nothing? I hope not! I think everyone leaves his or her mark in some way, even if it's to eventually have a descendant who does great things long after the original parent is long forgotten.

I don't remember his name, but my Driver Training instructor taught me how to parallel park perfectly, and I can still do it.

My Home Economics teacher taught me how to sew, and using what she taught me, I won the regional Singer Sewing Contest. The prize, awarded in Chicago, was a sewing machine and $300. I still have and use that indestructible, all-metal sewing machine. What's amazing is that another student she taught, younger than I, won the national Singer Sewing Contest the same year!

The teacher I remember most fondly, now that I am older, is our choir teacher, Mr. Carr. Quiet and reserved, he nevertheless coaxed amazing music out of a bunch of ordinary teenagers. No easy pieces for us, no sir. We sang only classical: Beethoven's Ninth, Polovetsian Dances by Borodin, (from which the melody for the popular song "Strangers in Paradise" was taken), Handel's Messiah (I can still sing the alto part to the Hallelujah Chorus today). One of our favorite pieces was Randall Thompsons Alleluia. Every year, the choir would go on a picnic to some place, I don't remember where, that had a big cave, and we would all go into that cave and sing that "Alleluia."

Oh, one more thing. I remember that a friend and I caught a little mouse (by hand) in the hall and we took it to our science teacher, Mr. Johnson. I don't know what he did with it, but I was proud of myself (a girl!) for catching that mouse and not running a way from it!

Terrific memories. I'm sure I'm leaving someone important out, but my Teacher Message would be that I regret not having told my teachers how much I appreciated them back then. If you are reading this while you are still in school, do it!

My Teacher is The Best

by Addyson
(Ankeny, Iowa)

How could I resist posting this teacher message? I'm wondering if this is written by a fifth-grader, however, because this person can actually write a sentence, capitalize and punctuate correctly. Usually I edit submissions (often a LOT), but I did not do anything to this submission, to show you what I mean. If this is a fifth-grader, kudos to her teacher! I laughed aloud at the "grow up" part, since I have advanced senior citizen status!

I'll Never Give Up

by Karen Renay Byrd
(Trona, California)

My grades go up; my grades go down.
It makes me want to fret and frown.
My teacher never gets cross or mad
Or tells me that I'm dumb or bad.

He says I have the essential tools,
But it's up to me to follow the rules.
Nothing but fear stands in my way,
So I'll stomp it down and out today

I'll always choose to do my best
When I am challenged to the test.
Thank you teacher for showing me
Just what I can be
If I believe in me.
