The value of a good teacher is something that cannot be replaced. Whether your child is in special education or not, a good teacher is a good leader. Teachers influence children to develop their own moral compass and other lifelong skills. They also inspire children to reach their dreams, all while motivating from the sidelines and nurturing when the time is right.
It is astonishing how many wonderful, talented people work with students with disabilities. Teachers have the task of finding new, intriguing ways to keep their students motivated and help them achieve success in the curriculum.
Having an adult figure in a child’s life that serves as a mentor and teacher, as well as a friend, is one of the most important facets to creating a better future. Teachers help shape children’s brain processes and instill in them a love for learning. It’s not an easy job for teachers to help improve the lives of their students with disabilities. It takes a lot of time and patience, as well as perseverance – especially with tantrums or miscommunications. Once a child trusts a teacher and looks up to them, the possibilities are endless. However, regardless of your child’s placement in school, event though a good teacher is hard to find, when the right one comes along it proves to be an extremely valuable part of growing up.
