Back to School Affirmations for Teachers

It’s a new school year and in the hustle and bustle of getting classrooms organized, learning students’ names, and completing all the start-of-term tasks, please take a moment to pause, breathe, and centre yourself. Remember that you’re a good teacher and the work you’re doing is important. Feel free to use the affirmations below if you ever need a quick reminder. Print them out and hang them up, copy them into your notebook or planner, or write them in a card and give them to all your teacher friends and colleagues. Let’s get this term off to a great start!

1. I am an excellent teacher. 2. I give my best effort every day, remembering that my best can fluctuate from day to day. 3. Last year is in the past. This year is a fresh start. 4. I am starting this year with a clean slate. 5. I let go of expectations of perfection. 6. I feel confident asking for help when I need it. 7. Remember that it’s called a “play” for a reason. 8. I have the opportunity to share a subject I love with my students. 9. I am allowed to learn, fail, and try again with my students. 10. I will re-frame problems as learning opportunities. 11. I trust my skills, education, and knowledge. 12. I am not afraid to ask for help. 13. If I don’t know something, I can look it up! 14. I am learning alongside my students. 15. The work I do matters. 16. The process is equally as important as the product. 17. I will celebrate growth and wins, no matter how big or small. 18. My program is my program, and I won’t compare it to anyone else’s. 19. My program is valuable and teaches students important skills. 20. This is going to be a great year!
