Teaching isn’t always easy and it seems to get a little more stressful or scary for teachers as the years pass on. We know it’s not always easy to be a teacher because it isn’t always easy to be a parent. This is why I wanted to express a few encouraging words to you. Yes, I believe in you and I know it takes a special person to be a teacher.
Every day, you’re helping your students learn about the world around them and themselves. Many of you are teaching them how to read while others are preparing them for life outside their parents’ homes. You inspire them to reach their full potential, and we need to be here to help you do just that. I am just a phone call or an email away. Let me know how I can help you.
Parents remember that the happier your child’s teacher is the better they can focus on teaching your child and the less likely to show frustration or anger. These are the people you are trusting with your child. Not every child is an angel, some love to cause trouble, and others are emotional. Don’t forget that they are searching over every child to see if their needs are being met if there is any signs of trouble in the classroom or beyond the school.
They are now teaching them how to hide from people if someone comes to harm them, etc. This is now becoming a very stressful job. See what you can do to help them, offer them a hand whether it is to get some school supplies the class might need or time as a volunteer that you could help. Help ease their stress and your child will learn a lot more in a more healthy environment.
The next time you are praying for your child, remember to pray for their teacher too.
Best Bible Verses to Encourage Teachers:
I wanted to take the opportunity to share some Bible verses that speak to the importance of teachers and encourage you in your work. We know it can be tough sometimes, but we believe in you and we’re proud of what you do for our kids. Here are a few verses I think will help encourage you:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.- Proverbs 3:5-6
Teachers, you are so important! Never let anyone tell you otherwise. You sit there every day listening and learning about each of our children. Besides their families, you are there day in and day out. In public, you smile at them or say hello, you don’t act as if you don’t know them. You study and learn them, you figure out how to understand them.
Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he grows older he will not abandon it.” This verse reminds us that it’s important to train our children well so they don’t stray from what is right. You are always teaching our children right from wrong. Pray that each and every day He shows you how to guide them, I know I will be.
This verse is also a reminder that as adults it’s never too late to learn something new—even if we’re old! Remember kids are watching and mimicking what they see. If they see adults still learning they will realize it is okay to do the same.
Matthew 10:24 says, “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a slave above his master.” The point here is that teachers should have respect for their students and realize they have something valuable to learn from them as well. This helps keep both sides grounded in reality and keeps them focused on what matters most—teaching each other without judgment or bias based on age or status. This will also show the children that they are just as important because even adults can learn from them.
Teachers, you’re doing a great job! Keep up the good work!
Encouraging Bible Verses Teachers Need to Hear
Here are five more bible verses that will hopefully help to encourage you and other teachers when the time comes.
“Yet those who wait for the Lord. Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.” – Isaiah 40:31
I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will advise you with My eye upon you.- Psalm 32:8
Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing. -1 Thessalonians 5:11
If you’re a teacher, chances are you’ve been through some tough times. Whether it was dealing with an out-of-control child, a screaming parent, or just a bad day. We all need a little encouragement to get through the day. Hopefully, these verses will help with that.
You’re always on your feet, and sometimes it seems like you’re doing it for no one but yourself. But that’s not true! You’ve got the most important job in the world—you’re shaping the next generation of humans. And that’s why it’s so important to remember this:
“To everything, there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.” – Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NKJV)
You may be feeling exhausted right now, but keep pushing through because it’s all going to be worth it when your students grow up and change the world.
Encouraging Note to Teachers
You are important! You are trusted! From the moment we put our kids on the bus or drop our kids off on those first steps of school we are trusting you with our little ones. We know they are safe with you or we’d never let them go.
As you wake up and begin to start your day think back to the reason you first wanted to teach. Why was this your passion? Hold on to this and continue your morning.
What makes a teacher a favorite teacher?
Did you have a favorite teacher when you were a child? Think back to what made them a favorite. Would you be your favorite teacher? I remember my favorite teacher took the time out of her day to help me with my chapped lips. She had noticed that I was always constantly sucking on them.
Another favorite teacher took the time out of her work week to send me a beautiful handmade card to me when I was in a hospital for a short while. No one had to do that but she took the time to care. Or maybe the teacher who encouraged me to write by giving me little prompts to do as extra credit and then she’d read the stories during breaks. I loved knowing someone liked my work, even if it was my teacher.
I hope these encouraging words and bible verses help you whenever you are feeling discouraged. Keep them close to your heart and remember that you matter. You are raising the next generation of world leaders.
I pray over this teacher right now. I pray that you will encourage them as they go into the classroom. Keep them safe from harm today and give them wisdom and grace when teaching our children.
Thank you, Father,
