Dear Tired Teacher…


Dear Tired Teacher… we are here for you.

This year has brought with it more demands on teachers. We are spending countless hours prepping, creating, and delivering instruction in a variety of ways. ¬†Many days it feels like we aren’t appreciated, but we wanted to share some words of encouragement and praise from colleagues and parents.

Don’t forget to grab the freebies at the end of this post!! ?

“Rest up and take care, this year is a marathon, not a sprint. You got this ??” ~ Laurin D.¬†

“You can do it! We are in this together.” ~ Nina D.

“There have been a few bumps in the road, to say the least! ¬†But don’t give up. ¬†Because of you, our children feel encouraged and loved even if it is from a distance.” ~ Amanda E-P.

“You’ve got this! Don‚Äôt forget to take time out for yourself. If you get sick, you won‚Äôt do anyone any good.” ~ Clare M.

“Teachers are the most resilient people. Who else can totally rearrange their day at a moment’s notice and keep a classroom full of children safe and protected? Keep your heads up and JUST BREATHE! Take it one day (or minute) at a time. You can do this.” ~ Pat H.

“Yes, we can do this together as a group to encourage each other. The sky is the limit. We love what we do. Our profession is to get our little stars to shine in the sky.” ~ Joanne O.

“Grateful for all our staff who go above and beyond to support each other, our students, and their families.” ~ Ana V.

“Pray for teachers every day!” ~ Camilla L.


“Whenever I’m having a bad day I repeat “Tomorrow will be better. Tomorrow is another day. Hang in there.” Those sweeties outnumber the ones that make you want to pull your hair out!” ~ Leatrice F.

“Thank you, teachers, for giving to our students your best efforts and love each day. God bless you.” ~ Gerry A.
