During this special Teacher Appreciation Week we want to share the amazing ripple effect of a teacher! Check the video below It’s a quick one (less than three minutes). It shows how far teachers' impact might be reaching!
Teachers are always making micro-decisions in the classrooms constantly. They are always analyzing and trying to do what’s right for their students.
In a short period of time, they might think …
-Is she having a hard day? Maybe she needs a pat on the back and some encouragement.
-He really seems to gravitate toward that topic. Maybe I can recommend a book.
-I overheard her saying she has an important game tonight. I’ll wish her good luck.
But teachers often forget those micro-decisions right after they make them.
But the impact of them can last a lifetime!
They’re like the ripples in a pond. When you throw a rock in calm water, the ripples cascade outward and change the water for a long time.
Think about the ripples you’re creating with your students. They might reach further than you think.
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week
