40 Posts Appreciating Wholesome Teachers

Published 2 weeks ago

As kids, we encountered influential adults who helped shape our lives. For some of us, this was a parent. While for others, it was an aunt or uncle. While yet others found their mentor in a teacher. While we imagine teaching can be as soul-sucking a job as any, some have held strong in maintaining their positive impact on youthful minds. 

Our team recently searched online for posts that show their appreciation of encounters with such individuals. Scroll below to read a collection of these incidents when teachers upheld the honour of their esteemed positions and imparted a great deal more to their students than just mere knowledge.

#9 Yesterday The Quietest Kid In My Last Class Spoke To Me For The First Time. He Asked If He Could Doodle On My Board, And Since We Were Just Waiting Around For Buses I Said, “Sure”

He draws an insanely realistic face, and when I tell him how awesome it is, he says he likes to draw. He also likes comics so we talk about the Green Lantern Corps because his favorite artist does the comics until his bus is called. Today, he immediately went to the board when the bell rang and started drawing. His bus was called in less than ten minutes yet he was able to do this. I’m going to take pictures of all his doodles this year and give them to him in a book at the end. I hope it reminds him to keep doing what he loves.

#10 Our Ex-Marine Teacher Has A Student Draw A “Cat Of The Day” On The Board Because He Likes To. He Was Absent On Friday And Wasn’t Able To Do So. So this morning, he took out his phone, opened Neko Atsume, and drew a “substitute cat”. I love this teacher.

#40 Professor Still Teaches While Holding His Kid

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
