10 THINGS TEACHERS LOVE TO HEAR THEIR STUDENTS SAY 1

Recommended Posts

Guest Paul Stone

Appreciation from others is always great even when someone loves their job and doesn't need motivation to do it. For example, teachers love teaching and learning although they are used to students despising school. Even so, the things teachers love to hear most are those that tell them they are making a difference somehow. In an often thankless job, it's like a message from out of the blue that says, "keep doing what you're doing."

Teachers don't do what they do to seek validation; they do it because they care. They see the greatness in their learners and desire to witness them realize it. The things teachers love to hear are about their kids breaking learning barriers and creating ideas they can run with. No matter if it's in the moment or years down the road, they tell a teacher their best was enough.

10 THINGS TEACHERS LOVE TO HEAR FROM LEARNERS

The following are some things every teacher loves to hear anytime and anywhere. When our learners say them and mean them, the whole day changes. Suddenly, we realize our hard work is paying off in terms of the many hats a teacher wears every day. How do you feel when your students say these things when you're least expecting it?

1. I USED TO THINK____, BUT NOW I REALIZE____.

This speaks to a shifting of paradigms and a willingness to accept other ideas. Learners are connecting past knowledge and beliefs to new discoveries that challenge and inspire them. Of course, when a mind opens it's more beautiful than anything.

2. I GET EVERYTHING UP UNTIL ____.

Honesty is always the best policy. Indeed there is nothing more heartbreaking than a learner thinking they can't say what they don't know. This is one of the things teachers love to hear most for two reasons. First, it means the learner is self-aware enough to admit they are stuck and need help. Second, it means you've provided an environment in which they feel safe enough to do so.

3. A BETTER QUESTION WOULD BE____.

All learning begins with a question, and if learners can fashion better and better questions, then they should. Asking questions that are more essential is easier than you think, and here are two simple ways to do it.

4. CAN I TALK TO YOU ABOUT SOMETHING?

Of all the things teachers love to hear, this can often be the scariest. It can either mean a discussion about learning or something much more personal. How you choose to approach whatever comes after these words is up to you. Nevertheless, rejoice in the knowledge that the student trusts you enough to feel they can confide in you.
