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.

Kinda sad that I have never had a teacher who I truly appreciate when I watch this. They were all either the enemy or I liked them, but didn't respect them.

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.

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. ❤️

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.

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

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 ❤

Aw this is so sweet, i have a gym teacher who is like a father to me, i'm afraid to tell him because i grew up without a father :( its cool to see this 💓

When I get older I want to become a teacher, and I want to make a great difference in people's life. And to hear what these people said, that made me actually cry of happiness.

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...

Meanwhile my teacher literally called me worthless once and another teacher that hit on me... I wish I could have a bond like this with one of my teachers.
ーldp
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. 😡

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.

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.

My teacher kicked me out of class before the bell even rang for laughing. Wish I had a teacher that was normal

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.

I wish I could visit my 5th grade teacher again she was the best

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.

Ok but like tell them directly, no need to set up such a thing

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 :(

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🙏❤️

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
Anned avb-Minecraft,singing,&more!

I have autism, am moderately deaf, and have a bunch of other things I have to deal with in my day to day life. I found school extremely hard, in middle school, I would get told to leave a lot, by the headteacher, because he didn't know how to deal with me. In Secondary school, I got kicked out in Year 8, moved to another and got kicked out again in Year 10. This is because the teachers didn't know how to handle my needs, and as for a sign of help, I would act out. Honestly, it's hard to go home knowing even your parents don't think you'll achieve any qualifications. Almost as if they think I'm a failure, when it was just the education system failing me. I didn't get a chance to do all the GCSE's I wanted to do. However I did achieve an English GCSE, with a Life Skills qualification. I wasn't the only one believing in myself, it came down to a couple teachers in my final year when I was moved to a private education system ran by the county. Thanks to them, I achieved those qualifications. I am now in college working towards my A-Levels in English Language, Philosophy, Psychology, Media, and Business. I recently went to my middle school where I had some of my most troubles, and went to see all my old teachers. I met my Year 6 teacher who was a pianist. When I was a kid, I had no interest in music. God it was wonderful to see her smile as I told her I'm a musician, playing Guitar, Piano, and drums, as well as being a vocalist. Just remember, no matter how many people think you'll fail, if you believe in yourself, you'll get what you want. Every. Single. Time. I am now a musician, graphic artist, Twitch streamer, and have a beautiful girlfriend. I ended up with a pretty good life, from times when I wanted to kill myself and thought I'd never be happy, I ended up being the happiest person in the world. Teachers shape your future, but it's teachers with love that shape your life.

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

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

The first 4 years of school my teacher was absolutely horrible. Hated her. Took a lot of confidence I would've needed for future years. Don't know how I would have reacted if was in this video.

I had this amazing teacher who sadly committed suicide halfway through our schooling year. He was so bright, bubbly and he was just kind in general. I remember going on a school camp, and on the bus there, he told us that whoever sung would get some chocolates, so myself and a friend sung about 5 songs and we got so much chocolate! He got me into reading and he always had nicknames for everyone. It was so unexpected and out of nowhere. I actually remember him saying before he left on his last day at school "I'm not sure how long I'll be away for... but you'll have a new teacher for a while" and we never thought anything of it, apart from maybe he was going to be sick, or going on holiday, until a couple of days later our principal came into our class and told us, I remember a couple of girls just broke down, one in particular who had grown up with a semi-abuse family and no dad, and she said he was literally like her dad she never had. Pretty sad story, but he was so amazing, wish i got the chance to tell him that, although I was only 13 or so at the time.
Oh Se-Hun
Can I send this to all my teachers who act like a douche to all their students, to teach them that they need to love their students?????
