I wish I could do this with my Year 10 English teacher. She changed my life. It's because of her I'm pursing creative writing at a university level. I was so upset when she passed away last year.

This litteraly made me cry so much. My mom was an alcoholic from my early childhood, and in second grade i changed school. I had this teacher from 2nd grade to 6th grade. In about 4th grade I started cutting myself, and she was the first one to discover it. She helped me SO much, she even helped me clean my wounds so it wouldn't get infected a few times. She was the only person in the world who believed in me to the fullest. When 6th grade ended, I was so sad that I couldn't have her. She wrote me a letter telling me that i was the one person she had so much trouble "leaving". She even talked to my new (fucking horrible) teacher, and told her to make sure I was okay. In 7th grade i got hospitalized in the pscych ward, and the next 2 years ahead i was in and out, and now, I'm in 10th grade (in a special school), diagnosed with schizophrenia. A day doesn't pass where I don't think about her, and feel grateful for her being there for me. I truly believe that if she wasn't there for me the way she was, I would have killed myself a long time ago.

Teachers deserve so much respect and appreciation. They work so hard yet get payed so little.

My teacher would probably never want to see me again if I told her how I felt

My 6th grade English teacher was the absolute nicest "grandma" figured teacher ever. My father passed away in 6th grade from cancer, she was the first person to arrive at the viewing and funeral and sat and talked to my family for hours, crying with us. All the donations for the funeral went to our education fund, she donated a tremendous amount of money. A few years later, her husband passed away from a heart attack and we did the same for her as she did for us. She is an angel in disguise. ❤️

So many teachers have had a big impact on me, but I am just sad that I am the quiet girl in the class and that they will probably never know how much I am grateful for what they have done to me...

I remember when taking a grade 12 calculus course, I had this fantastic teacher who was incredibly committed, and would do absolutely anything for her students to succeed. There were times I know she would stay with students helping them to the point she would have to sleep at the school. I remember one time, I had to take a test during another one of her classes. While I was in a pretty tough course with dedicated students, this was one of the lower level courses, and it was filled with students that didn't have the respect for the teacher that she deserved. I asked her after the test how she deals with that, and she said "Sometimes it can be tough, but you always find one or two students in those classes you can really inspire to learn and become better, and that makes it worth it" and I think that was the greatest thing a teacher ever said to me.

I hope to one day be able to thank my ninth grade biology teacher. After my suicide attempt, he was the only teacher who visited me in the hospital, the only teacher who didn’t force me to compete schoolwork directly after I came back, and the only teacher who didn’t treat me like broken glass. He was the only one who seemed to care about me even in my worst moments. I later left that school after ninth grade ended, and never got to take his chemistry class, which I’m still disappointed about. I ended up moving to a really good location and attending an amazing school though, and he was the one who encouraged me to leave. He really changed my life though, and helped me realize that life really is worth living, and that there are people worth living for. I will forever be grateful for him and everything he did for me

For me it would be like *teacher arrives * "HELL NO, NOT HER AGAIN, I'M OUT OF HERE"

I miss my elementary art teacher so bad. She was such an inspiration and taught me how to see the beauty in every little thing possible. She's the reason I paint and draw and play the piano. She helped me become who I am today and I never would've gotten here without her. Rest In Peace, Miss Cloud🙏❤️

Teachers have the power to really influence and positively affect students and their lives. A good teacher is never forgotten. Hence why teachers are so valuable.

Props to my English teacher who spent the whole class telling us about her life instead of making us study, although it did make me seriously depressed and suicidal, still ly thooughhh.

I like my teachers but I deeply hate them because they made my life harder by adding me stress to almost everyday of my life from Pre K to Bachelors, if you think about it, I'm wasting 18 years of my life to prepare around 40 years of working, like wtf I just wish I was a farmer instead. 😡

See the impact? Students will never change by the subjects they teach. It's the lessons on life and moral support is what makes a teacher good. Why can't people understand that :(

Some of my teachers are actually really cool and make effort to have a connection with their students but I'm too shy and awkward. So annoying

My seventh grade English teacher is possibly the best woman I've ever known (other than my mom and grandma). She was the kindest and most gentle woman. She developed my love for literature and I can never thank her enough for being a terrific woman.
Annette Liu
this is so great ❤ teachers can really have such an effect on us. Really help us get over obstacles and push us forward. You're lucky if you find a good teacher. It annoys kids disrespect them just to look cool or whatever... a teacher's job is really one of the hardest honestly because they have to handle not one or two but so many of us. I'm so grateful for the teachers I've had in my life ❤

I had a really close relationship with my 2nd-5th grade teacher. She basically filled the spot of my mother who isn't totally in the picture. I went to her house, she invited me to things, took care of me the best she could along with being a single parent herself. I love her a lot.

My least favorite teacher was my 1st grade teacher and I was stuck with her again in 2nd because she decided to teach 2nd grade

I've had this history teacher for two years in a row now and he's honestly the best teacher I've ever had and there's some kids who say shit about him and it pissed me off so much cause he's such a good teacher and such a good person and he's the only teacher that gets me through school

I used to hate math so much. I didn't hate the teachers, but I didn't like the way they teached it because I never understood it. It was mainly when fifth grade (middle school) started and I was just really struggling. My teachers were really nice which I was thankful for, but the way they taught it just made it so much harder for me to understand, and I felt like I wanted to give up. I wasn't ready for 8th grade at all and I felt like math was just going to be another painful harder year. I just got really frustrated but when I met all my teachers they seemed really nice, and when we started working and getting into the school year everything changed. My current teachers: Mr. Whittemore (science), Miss Morrison (Ela), Mr. McCarthy (Civics), and Miss Benedict the best math teacher I have ever had. She changed my thinking about math so much, and every time I walk into her classroom I'm excited because she gives so many examples about the work it's not even funny. She teaches it in a way very slowly and very detailed. She's hilarious and I'm one of her best students out of all classes. She comes around and asks everybody how their day is going, and if they need help. I love her so much she's just amazing! I'll be sure to get her Christmas present (all my other teachers too) but definitely miss Benedict. I can't wait to see how the rest of the year goes with her and I really hope I meet other teachers like her in the future. Thank you so much Miss benedict for being an awesome, caring math teacher. ❤👍

I want to hug all my teachers now ;-;

I wish i could do this with my 5th grade teacher Mrs. Hilt. She was like a second mother to me. I switched into her class because the girl that has been bullying me for the past 5 years at the time was in my class with a new teacher who didnt know how to handle the problems that occurred with us. Mrs. Hilt knew about all the difficulties that continued happening after i made the switch, and took me under her wing and basically raised me in school like i was one of her own children. she is a mother of two kids. She was sweet, cheerful, and funny. Amazing with elementary school kids. I couldnt stop crying on the last day of school. I gave her the biggest hug and the only words i could say to her, and this may sound way too common to mean anything, but this came from the bottom of my heart, and can be very powerful when said in the right circumstances. The only words i said to her were, "Thank you... So much..." Tears trickling down my face. I didnt want to leave... My 5th grade class was amazing, so many awesome memories were made then... Sometimes i look back and wonder if me only saying thank you to her was enough... I miss you Mrs. Hilt...

teachers are so underpaid and under appreciated. Honestly I have had teachers that have changed my life, I cannot thank them enough for being such wonderful people. I wish I could see them again, just to thank them.

I grew up in a family of educators. My father was chielf education officer for the province, multiple schools pricipals and multiple school districts superintendents of school boards, but three teachers made an impact on my life... One was Carmel Chisholm (I called her aunt Carmel, I always have and always will love her like a grandmother) ,one was John Briand and elementary school teacher and another was a high schooler physics/chemistry teacher Henry Vanbommel. they taught me so much and they never let me forget the true reason of school EDUCATION. These teachers were so giving and selfless that hey are a formative part of who I am.....
