Teacher Shares Photo of Inspiring Messages From a Student’s Mum!

Teacher Shares Photo of Inspiring Messages From a Student’s Mum!

 

Never underestimate the power you have to leave an impression on a child’s life. One mum took the time to write uplifting messages on her kid’s pencils and it’s an action that brought this teacher to tears.

Facebook user Amanda Cox, shared this beautiful story on her page where she highlighted just how special an encouraging message can be for a child.

It all started when one day at work, Amanda noticed that she needed more pencils. She asked her students if they could all check to see if they had spare pencils to share with her and their classmates. One boy asked if he could keep the pencils that his mum gave him, and, of course, the teacher said yes. But then he changed his mind and decided to give some of them to his classmates.

Here’s what she wrote:
Today I was running low on pencils so I asked all of my kids to pull out any of my pencils that they had in their desks. I had one student ask me if he could keep his pencils that his mom gave him for school. Of course, I said yes. He then said, “well, I guess I’ll give you a few so my classmates can have them too.” I thought nothing of it and took the pencils that he handed me. When I was sharpening them, I noticed writing on a few of them. I then realized that my student’s mother took the time to write on his pencils. I asked him if he would mind showing me the rest of them. What I read melted my heart:
– You are so talented.
– This will be a great year.
– You are creative.
– You are phenomenal.
– Never give up.
– You can do this.
– You are knowledgeable.
– You are a math whiz.
– You are intelligent.

– Proud of you everyday.
– I love you.
– You have a brilliant mind.
– You are wonderful.
– You are a problem solver.
– Follow your dreams.
– You are perfect.
– I am proud of you.
– You will change the world.
– You are amazing.
– You are the best.
– You are important.
This probably took his mom a few minutes to do yet it lit up his whole day at school. He wasn’t embarrassed that his mom wrote on his pencils. Thanks to his mom, he was reminded of his self worth and wanted to share the same feeling with his classmates. THESE are the things that we should be reminding our kids (both parents AND teachers). Imagine the look on a child’s face when they are reminded that they are important, talented, loved, knowledgeable and so much more. Help them know that someone believes in them and is proud of them in everything they do. Even if you think it is cheesy or you don’t have enough time or that you will have little impact, remember that you may be the only one telling and reminding them these things and EVERY kid needs to know their value. This is why I teach.
