As a former secondary science teacher, I know how hard y’all work and plan to create meaningful lessons and activities for your students and are always striving to do what’s best for them. That’s why whenever Teacher Appreciation Week rolls around, I want to take time to say thank you and appreciate the teachers in my life, which includes you! To help celebrate this time, I wanted to reflect on four of my personal favorite and most influential teachers and share what I’ve learned from each of them.

While there are many teachers who influenced my life, four individuals stand out from the rest. Whether I was their student or co-worker, each of them taught me a valuable lesson, skill, or perspective that I implemented in my own teaching. Some of the things I mention might seem obvious, but it’s also the way they approached their classroom or students that made them so effective, memorable, and influential.

After listening to each of the four things I learned, I hope they help show you that the small things really do matter, and even if you don’t think you are, you’re making a long-term impact on your students. So just like I took some time to reflect on the most influential teachers in my life, make some time to do the same and reach out to your most influential teachers to tell them how much you appreciate them!
