New Video Expresses the Importance of Teachers and Why They Need to Hear It

“You have no idea how much I needed to hear those words.”

It’s impossible to overestimate the important role that teachers play in our lives, but many of them are unaware of the real impact they’ve had. To repay a few of these amazing educators, a new video released by an online university asked six students to discuss how a teacher changed their lives. One student reveals how a teacher helped him overcome a tragic accident and another how a teacher taught her self-acceptance. But things change when the students come face to face with the people who have made such a huge impact in their lives.

“Sometimes you just don’t feel like you're making an impact. To be told by someone that you have is something that I needed to hear.”
