After 12 years in the classroom, one thing remains true… my heart will always be a teacher. This time of year brings makes me reminisce the good times, the positives, and the hopes that come with teaching children. I used to love the beginning of the school year! Getting organized, planning out new ideas, investigating exciting new ways to teach, and waiting for the promise of a fabulous new year. I never started a single year without taking the time to get organized and plan. To celebrate the release of my dear friend’s newest teacher planner, I thought I would remind you just how awesome your job as a teacher is with my favorite inspirational quotes for teachers.
First off, let me just say if you are reading this post… YOU ROCK! Seriously, maybe you are a classroom teacher, retired teacher, homeschool teacher, or tutor. Maybe you are a parent, a grandparent, or a caregiver. Maybe you are none of the above. However, you saw the title of this post, or an image that sparked your curiosity and that means you ROCK!
It means you value teaching and all the hard work and dedication that goes into it. So, thank you.
Okay, now that I got that off my chest, I am ready to share my absolute favorite inspirational quotes for teachers. Why? Because teachers ROCK! Oh, and because I have a special surprise giveaway at the bottom of the post for an amazingly beautiful and thorough printable planner.

Adding some beauty to planning (something we do constantly as teachers) honors our efforts and inspires our own creativity.
I love the disc system! I have a notebook like this and use it for EVERYTHING. This planner seems like the perfect solution to organizing it all. I would love to win this!!
I love this planner. It looks beautifully inspiring and can be customized to suit my class and preferences. Love this concept!
Thanks for the quotes. I write a weekly quote on a chalkboard in the entrance of the daycare I work at.
the quote in front of the planner continues to inspire you throughout the day, It’s a great and very creative, you can keep with you as a reminder of which student has a birthday coming up, or needs a little more help; for example in math or reading. What a wonderful way to be closer to you students in this busy world. Great idea !! 🙂
