Our teachers, professors, and advisors have had a huge impact on our lives. I am certain that we can all say we would not be where we are today if it were not for the courageous guidance that they offered us over the years. Having said that, I want you to take a second and think of the thousands of students that passed through each of their classes………
Think of how many students they invested in.
Think of how year after year, semester after semester, we eagerly check our schedules to see who our “new” educators will be.
Think of the hours and hours of they spent working on plans and creative ways to engage us.
NOW ASK YOURSELF….. How many of those students do they hear back from?
When is the last time that I have talked with a former teacher, professor, or advisor?
Do our most influential educators know we could not have done it without them?
I quickly found the answer to these questions were all no’s. This is when I decided that I must check in with them and let them know how I am doing. It is my hope that I could encourage others to do the same by incorporating this on Project Deeds.
1) Think of at least, five former educators that have had a significant impact on your life.
2) Write them a card and let them know how you are doing.
3) Thank them!
4) Send the card to them and encourage others to be intentional about executing this deed.
Be a Deed Doer.
