An open letter to a special teacher

Perspectives from a Positively Stressed Senior


Dear Special Teacher,

First off, I want to tell you that I don’t know what I would’ve done without you this year or last. You have become one of my biggest supporters throughout my junior and senior year.

Teaching is obviously not an easy job and on top of it you provide advice, love, and some pretty good snacks every once in awhile. You have helped to shape the person I am just throughout these short years of you teaching me. Taking an AP class is a tough thing to do and you made it so fun and much easier for everyone in the class.

I have never heard a single complaint from anyone about your teaching style or personality. You made the transition into my hardest high school years seem easier. You quickly became one of my trusted and supportive teachers and for that I will forever be thankful. You have been there for me through some very tough times this year and helped me throughout everything. You have listened to my rants, my raves, and everything in between.

You are an amazing teacher and you always make sure your students know the curriculum. Not only do you make sure your students thrive in the classroom, but also outside the classroom.

You have inspired me to become a better person and work harder than I ever have, and allowed me to have confidence in who I am and in what I do. You constantly challenge your students to work harder and to reach higher goals. You make your students better people in and out of the classroom. I am so very thankful that you are my teacher.

Thank you for everything that you have done and are still doing for me and all your students. All your students are blessed to have you as their teacher because you are one of the most dedicated and caring teachers I have ever had.

Thank you.

A Very Blessed Student
