Dear teacher, may you see in your future how your students have achieved great success, which is a source of great satisfaction.
The teaching job is perhaps the most thankless job in the world because it is so little valued. So we all know the importance of a good teacher in a school career.
We all know the importance of an empathetic, encouraging and interesting teacher to give our kids a taste for learning. I understand the immense fatigue that grips the faculty when sometimes I see how they are manhandled.
I’m not sure how teachers deal with the responsibility of their job, the noise, the agitation, parental ingratitude, as well as childish and critical remarks directed at them, especially in this situation during pandemic where every other mom complains about not having enough time for herself.
I only have two children and sometimes I feel overwhelmed. They manage at least 35 each day and with a smile, as a bonus.
So a good teacher always makes you do something a little bit more than you thought that you could do.
John B. Goodenough
Every morning, our children, who are not always well awake, are placed in the hands of teachers with little support from the system in place, silently demanding that they manage to make them feel considered, reassured, while waiting for them to make them smart and resourceful.
They are expected to be fair, impartial, warm, and attentive. Things that we don’t always manage to be ourselves with our children.

While we savour the silence after the morning run, they live among the screams. Whether they’re happy or angry doesn’t change the story.
I do not know either how they manage to find so many ideas, every day, to occupy intelligently our children.
I do not know how they manage to accuse parents’ comments without flinching. Those parents who let them know they have a job, and forget that their children’s education is too.
I don’t know how they manage
I don’t know how they manage to have the courage to bring out their craft materials or their corrections in the evening.
I still don’t know how they manage to find patience for their children after taking care of other people’s children. Where do they find the resources, the energy?
