25 Affirmations for Teachers: A Guide to Using Affirmations in the Classroom
Teachers, do you want to start your school year feeling refreshed and motivated? Do you want to feel more confident in your teaching abilities throughout the entire year? If so, then you should start using affirmations for teachers. Affirmations are positive statements that can help change our thoughts and emotions for the better. In this blog post, we will discuss how affirmations can be used specifically for a teacher, and we will provide 25 example affirmations teachers can start using right now. Let’s get started!
Being a teacher is one of the most selfless professions a person can undertake, so let me start this article off by saying “thank you”. Thank you to all of the teachers out there who are making a difference in the lives of their students. I know that it is not always an easy job, but it is definitely a rewarding one. Now let’s get started on discussing affirmations for teachers and how they can be used in the classroom!
What are affirmations for teachers?
As I mentioned before, affirmations are positive statements that can help change our thoughts and emotions for the better. In other words, affirmations are like a reset button for our mind. They can help us to focus on the positive aspects of our lives and they can help to increase our feelings of self-worth and confidence. And who could use a “reset button” more than a teacher? Studies show that 77% of teachers regularly feel stressed out and overwhelmed. That is a very high percentage, and it’s no wonder why. Teachers are constantly being pulled in multiple directions and they are expected to be experts in everything. It’s a lot of pressure! But using affirmations can help to ease some of that pressure by helping us focus on the positive aspects of our lives and our jobs.
The benefits of using affirmations in the classroom
There are many benefits to using affirmations in the classroom, both for the teacher and for the students. Some of the benefits of using affirmations in the classroom include:

These powerful words of positivity (affirmations) can be like an ace up your sleeve, ready to be used whenever you need them. Trust me, we know there will be days when you need them!

But the great thing about affirmations is that they can be done anytime and anywhere. You can do them while you are readying your classroom in the morning, during your lunch break, or even right before during a bathroom/coffee break. Basically, anytime that you have a few spare moments, you can do your affirmations. And the more you do them, the easier they will become. Try to find a quiet place you can spend just a few minutes each day to do your affirmations. We promise it will be worth it!
