15 Signs You Have The Cutest Teacher Ever

15 Signs You Have The Cutest Teacher Ever

Is your teacher the cutest of them all? Does your heart beat faster when the bell rings for class (and you’re already sitting at the desk, of course, because you’re just that keen)? Your teacher sounds pretty cute to me. Here are some signs that you have found the Surprised Kitty of cute teachers.

1.Your teacher loves to give out free food.

We all know food is the best way to a person’s heart. Any teacher that brings snacks to a classroom or says those golden words: “if you’re going to eat in this lesson, you must share with the whole room,” must be incredibly loved. And that’s how we end up falling head over heels for biscuits and the art teacher all at once.

 2. Your teacher wears the coolest clothes.

Dressing right is key. We all know the teacher look – if it involves dressing-gown style cardigans, leather elbow patches, thick Trelawney lenses, frumpy jumpers, or baggy cuff-linked shirts, we’re just not interested. But is that – is that a pencil skirt? Is he wearing Hollister? Ooh lala, French is suddenly our kind of language.

3. Your teacher is totally down with the kids.

They don’t even mean to be cool, but they just so happen to have a Twitter account and an uber cool Instagram full of foodie pics (our favourite), sunsets, and ironic selfies. And even though your ‘follow’ was never reciprocated, you still stalk the account at least once a day.

4. Your teacher drops the mask once in a while.

We all treasure those moments when the teacher admits that they are not just a teacher and shows us pictures of the kids, or lets slip about a drunken escapade over the weekend. We’re not just the students anymore – we’re equals. Oh my gosh, we’re friends.

5. Sometimes, your teacher is just as bored as you are.

We’ve all had those lessons where the teacher ditches the lesson plan. “Let’s have a debate.” “Let’s watch this film that’s distantly related to World War I.” “Why don’t you all write a play about the American Civil War and act it out?”  We love the chance to get creative and throw away the textbook for those vital minutes of the day. And we love Mr. Thompson for it too.

6. Your teacher even gets tipsy at Prom.

That English teacher who stumbles in her heels, the math professor who throws up on his shoes – it’s all so human. The easiest way to fall into a teacher crush is discovering that… they’re human too?! Who knew?

7. Your teacher is on your level.

The teachers that host a debate about the pros and cons of Zayn leaving One Direction, who discuss the ethics of a ‘cut for Zayn’ hashtag and help you work out what the hell is going on in the run up to an election – the teachers that engage you as a person in society and not a child in a school, those are the teachers that are in your fondest thoughts.

8. Your teacher can be smooth as silk and cool as a cucumber.

They never get flustered in the cinema when you’re in the next row of a Fifty Shades of Grey screening. You’ll still get a wave and a smile and you won’t be ignored in a shop queue, on a bus ride, or in a restaurant. You both have lives, it’s no big deal to wander into them outside of the classroom.

9. Comedy is your teacher’s first language.

You have banter, and they give as good as they get. You drew a rude part of the human body on the board, did you? They might happen to remark on its rather unimpressive size and speculate on the perpetrator. They might call you nicknames or give you a stupid hat to wear when you give the wrong answer. They make you laugh, and you think they’re a hunk and a half.

10. No way – your teacher makes mistakes?!

Sometimes, they even spell things wrong on the board and congratulate you when you correct them. They can forget their textbook or arrive late to class. They’re your favourite, they’re adorable, because a bit of human frailty is always instantly lovable.

12. Your teacher loves to sit on the desk.

I know, it doesn’t sound like a big deal, but when they teeter on the edge like that and slouch just like you do? You’re thinking — what a thrill seeker, they’re totally casual and cool.

13. They can be totally badass.

This is a rare occurrence, but when the moment comes, we can’t help but get a bit hot under the collar. They’re angrily snapping a pencil in two or ripping pages out of your folder, because they care.

14.  Your teacher loves a good criticism sandwich.

None of us likes to admit that our favourite teacher criticises our work, but let’s remember, folks — they do it because they care. So it’s lovely when those cutting negatives are squished between your excellent spelling and perfect grammar, not to mention a smiley face. Thanks, Mrs. Cogsworth, you’ve softened the blow.

15. Your teacher runs that extra mile.

There’s always one teacher who has a special warm place in our hearts. This gem stayed after school, did extra marking, tutored us into lunch – and although, admittedly, we didn’t enjoy it much at the time, we owe our A and our place at University to this marathon runner. All we can say is: thank you so much for your patience. We would have given up on ourselves way before you ever did.

10 Inspirational Books That Can Change Your Life

10 Inspirational Books That Can Change Your Life

If you want to change your life, you are going to have to do things differently. Sometimes you can look to inspirational books to create a positive change in your life. If you desire change, you are going to have to step out of your comfort zone. As Anthony Robbins points out in the quote below, you are going have to experience discomfort and pain in order to transform your life. Any change, whether it be an organisation or personal, can be a painful process. However, the rewards of going through the change process are priceless.

“All personal breakthroughs begin with a change in beliefs. So how do we change? The most effective way is to get your brain to associate massive pain to the old belief. You must feel deep in your gut that not only has this belief cost you pain in the past, but it’s costing you in the present and, ultimately, can only bring you pain in the future. Then you must associate tremendous pleasure to the idea of adopting an empowering new belief” – Anthony Robbins

There are two specific events that threw my life into a tailspin, where for a while there it felt like I was losing control. These two events were, the sudden and tragic loss of my parents, and being made redundant three times in eighteen months.

With the third redundancy, I was at my lowest point in my life. I felt utterly useless. My self-confidence was at zero, and I could see no future for me.

My life was turned upside down. I knew that I had to turn it around. I just didn’t know how.

Then one wet Sunday afternoon, I picked up a book from my bookshelf called ,“The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brene Brown. I had this book for at least a year and had been meaning to read it, but hadn’t gone anywhere near a book for months.

When I read this book, I decided that I needed to get my life back. I needed to learn how to heal and rebuild my confidence, as well as my self belief.

So I started to read books. I read lots of books about inspirational stories on life, love, and happiness. Personal development and motivational books were full of information, tools, and strategies about how I could take control back and change my life. I would like to share with you the inspirational messages I got from reading these ten books that changed my life.

Read these 10 books because I believe they will inspire you, motivate you, and show you how to take action and go change your life!

    Awaken The Giant Within

    by Anthony Robbins
    The inspirational message from this book is how you have the power right now to control how you think, how you feel, and what you do. Anything you want or desire in your life, you already have the power to achieve it.

    “You and I have that same power at our disposal every moment of the day. At the moment, the questions that we ask ourselves can shape our perception of who we are, what we’re capable of, and what we’re willing to do to achieve our dreams” – Anthony Robbins

                      The Gifts of Imperfection

                      by Brene Brown

                      Do you ever feel that you are just not worthy enough, intelligent enough, or courageous enough to live a fulfilled happy life?

                      Do you have secret dreams that you hold deep inside of you that you don’t share in case someone thinks they are silly? Or are you too scared to follow your dreams because you fear that you may fail?

                      Brene Brown’s book, “The Gifts of Imperfection”, will show you how to find your courage, as well as rediscover your self-belief and self-worth.

                      This is the book that will get you prepared to embark on your journey of change. “The Gifts of Imperfection” is about you learning how to let go of who you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are.

                      “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy — the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” – Brene Brown

                      These 10 books were key to helping me change my life. I rediscovered hope for my future. I found my courage, strength, and my self-belief. I hope that by reading these books, you will find the same inspiration and motivation to take up the challenge and change your life.

                      “If one reads enough books one has a fighting chance. Or better, one’s chances of survival increase with each book one reads.” – Sherman Alexie
