For the love of teaching

by | Balance for Educators

We’re role models for the next generation. This is something I take into consideration every day when I walk into the classroom. How can I help support my students as they move towards adulthood?

We get to be creative and think outside the box. There is more than one way to create a classroom environment, teach a subject or support our students.

Every day is different, being a teacher is NEVER boring! We’re kept on our toes and always innovating, learning, and growing.

We make a difference. Every. Single. Day. Sometimes it’s a small thing, sometimes it’s big. Every day that we show up for our students, we’re making a difference in their lives.

We get to celebrate the wins of our students, past and present. I’ve been fortunate to keep in touch with some of my students over the years and to celebrate not just the end of our school year together but their milestones after.

We create relationships with our colleagues, students, and their families. In our schools, we get to be surrounded by people who all share a similar mission: to support children in their development and growth in order to become healthy and capable adults.

It’s inherently rewarding. #IYKYK

We get to see the progress our students make throughout the year. Whether you teach math, history, language or science… our kids start off the year usually with little to no knowledge on a subject and as the year progresses, we get to be the ones who support them in learning skills that will help them throughout their lives.

Why do YOU love teaching?

Balanced Life Mentor for Educators

Hi, I’m Amy (she/her)!
•PA Teacher 20+ years•

I consider myself a teacher and student every single day. I empower educators with self-support tools so they can live their BEST life!

As a teacher myself, I’m especially passionate about serving educators and feel strongly that learning self-support strategies can benefit anyone at any stage of life. In mentoring educators, my goal is to cultivate a space of acceptance and comfort, offering the people I support permission to be themselves, trust themselves, and grow at their own pace.
