25 Pictures that Prove Teaching Connects Us Around the World

We’re all in this together.

Teaching Connects Us Around the World

In classrooms around the world, teachers are giving. Caring. Losing sleep to make life better for their students. Making fun decorations out of whatever they can get their hands on. To celebrate World Teacher Day, we’ve rounded up 25 photos to show that national borders make no difference when it comes to teachers connecting with kids.

Because we’re not afraid to jump in…

We share our enthusiasm about anything and everything.

 

Because we love to get our holiday on…

We celebrate them all.

 

Because even when we’re so so busy…

We always seem to volunteer for one more thing.

 

Because who needs lunchtime to rest…

Our students always end up hanging out with us.

 

Because we respect our students…

We work weekends. A lot. So much.

 

Because we want students to reach higher…

We set the highest goals for them.

 

Because their smiles make us smile…

We keep each other going.

 

Because we don’t do blank walls…

We fill our spaces with our own kinds of inspiration.

I will always respect the way that educators are supported in #southkorea Being an educator there gave me opportunities that I would not have had elsewhere. I got to try all of my ideas and my skills were always taken seriously and nurtured. In this photo, the CEO of several academies is sitting in on one of my open classes with his daughter. After the class, he pulled the director to the side and told her, "Whenever she asks you for something, no matter what, give her what she wants. Keep her here." This was 8 years ago. Thank you for believing in me. #mindfulteaching #millennialteachers #creativeteachers #teacherpreneur #changemakers #travelingteachers #onlineteacher #funenglish #englishisfun #teachersfollowteachers #whyiteach #travelgram #teachabroad #dailyinspiration #thatswhy #ESL #teachersrock #blackeducatorsrock #teachersbelike #teachersmatter
