Thank You To The Teachers That Taught Me More Than Just School Work

Thank you for all the sacrifices and time you spent outside the classroom to help me.

Thank You To The Teachers That Taught Me More Than Just School Work

When I was a child, I was fortunate to have such incredible teachers. Now that I am in college, I realized that teachers dedicate their lives to their students. They have to get to school before the students and they leave their work after the students. They are responsible for creating the successful students, they have to deal with parents and students complaining about grades and often they have to stay after school to help struggling students. And unfortunately, they are under-compensated for their work.

So, wanted to tell all the amazing teachers that I had, thank you.

Thank you for always being so supportive of me.

You have always challenged me and but always said that I can do it.

Thank you for always sitting with me as I try to comprehend all this material.

If I ever needed help, you would stick around after school, or in office hours and go through the material with me. And you never said, "No, I'm too busy." You always said, "I will make time and we will go over it together."

Thank you for all the sacrifices that you made.

As a child, I never knew how hard teachers work. When I was a kid, I just assumed that a teachers job is to just teach. But there is so much more to being a teacher. Teachers are expected to be a mediator, role model, educator, and maybe even a social worker. They are basically responsible for their students lives from 9-3. And students aren't always the most well behaved. But teachers never showed that they are frustrated or stressed.

Thank you for truly enjoying the subject that you were teaching.

Because that passion inspired me to do better. Your passion and enthusiasm for the subject as inspired me to work even harder in school. It allowed me to see the value and importance of the subject that you were teaching.

Thank you for never telling me I was stupid, even though I said it to myself.

I don't understand certain STEM topics easily. I get overwhelmed by all the abstract topics that I feel like I should understand. I am not a good reader and writer. I can't analyze texts in depth. I always feel like an idiot because everyone around me seems to understand the reading or the concept easily and I don't. But you always said that 'it takes time and unfortunately there is never enough' or that "you are not an idiot, you just need to practice." That has honestly made a huge difference to me.

Thank you for all the sacrifices and time you spent outside the classroom to help me.

You guys work so many hours but you always make time to help me and other students. You care so much about your students and I definitely appreciate that.

And thank you for being an awesome role model.

I am lucky that I have such mentors and teachers that I admire and look up to.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
