How Teachers Can Influence Students For Their Future Career

How Teachers Can Influence Students For Their Future Career Picture
Teachers can have a huge impact on students and their future careers!

You always hear of the stories where successful people refer to that one teacher who didn’t believe in them. That one teacher who said they couldn’t make it and they couldn’t do what they do. The teacher who stated that they should make their dreams more realistic.

This post is to draw attention to the fact that teachers can have a positive impact on their students’ careers. Instead of crushing the dreams of your students, uplift them when they say they have aspirations. Make them realise that they can achieve anything if they put their mind to it. Yes, the lessons are very important and education is important as a whole, but understand that some students will perform better outside of the classroom.

If you shut down everything a student says which does not relate to the classroom, then that student will have less respect for you. The downside of this is that the student will also be less confident in taking risks and to go out of their comfort zone; two traits which are imperative in becoming successful.

Be that teacher who students look up to and who they feel they could open up to. Be that person who understands their struggles and who takes this into account when looking at their students’ scores. Each student is unique and they all want to accomplish their own things in life. Be that positive figure for them!

  1. I’m not a teacher but as a student we like to share things with those teachers who r friendly with us nd yes no one can how teachers play a very vital role in a student’s career…ur post is great …loved it …I’ll love to share this post with my teachers

  2. Lucky those who have teachers like that… It seems that they care more about grades than to address the students to the right subjects for them. It has been 15 years since I have finished school, but my nephew is facing the same problems I had. Teachers should teach students outside of their subjects, to find their passions, and not stress them if they fail in one or two subjects. They should teach them that it is ok not to be good at everything, but to focus the mind (and the heart) on what inspires them. It still seems very difficult to understand though.
    Nice article, thanks for sharing

    • Completely agree with this. It is very unfortunate but I guess they have their job and it is to pass their students. The true legends are the teachers who help their students pursue their passion in life

  3. I agree. I would add that we all can be positive influencers. I know I received some unexpected comment from a former camper that I used to be a counselor for. He told me something I had told him years before. It is a wonderful thing to encourage someone. We can all do that, build up people, and when giving feedback include with it positive feedback double.

  4. Agree very much. Coincidentally, I wrote about a personal encounter with a student, and what happened subsequently. The post is scheduled to be published tomorrow, on my WordPress blog. You are welcome to read it tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  5. Hehe. Before I even started reading your post, I thought of the teacher who discouraged me from the idea of becoming a teacher! I never wrote about that story on my blog, but I have mentioned teachers who saw the best in me, and encouraged the best in me. 😊

  6. I am a special education teacher so I can definitely relate to this and always have a positive influence on/ for my students ❀️….. Students can always sniff out a BS teacher, who really doesn’t care!

  7. Thank you for this inspiring post, Kamran. I really appreciate that you have written this post. Teachers will definitely play a vital role for the success of every student by motivating them on choosing a career.
