Gratitude For Teachers — What Are You Thankful For This Year?

It’s been quite a year; with too much Zoom, trying to teach in-person and online. But, teachers are a resilient bunch and have reasons to be thankful.

It’s been quite a year. I think most of us hoped we’d be back to normal by now in our lives and in our classrooms. Teachers are reporting high levels of burnout. This year wiped us out with too much Zoom, trying to teach in-person and online. Even if we are back in the classroom, we may still be in masks or worried about our health. We are certainly dealing with students who are showing the effects of pandemic isolation and loss of learning. 

Teaching is not for the faint of heart even in the best times. Throughout the pandemic we have risen to the occasion — revamping lesson plans, learning how to teach online, using new technology to teach and communicate. 

Teachers are a resilient bunch. 

And teachers have reason to be thankful.

Reasons to be thankful

I’m thankful I’m not on Zoom all day. 

I am thankful for the supportive community of educators I get to work with. 

I’m thankful for all the little moments when I realized I got through to a student — the aha moments with a new reader, the kid who “hates” math getting multiplication, their eagerness to play a learning game. 

I’m thankful for coffee to help through long days and for my family at the end of a long day. 

I’m thankful for the times my students made me laugh (and sometimes for the moments when they made me cry). I’m touched sometimes by what they share. I’m proud sometimes of what they do.
