In this post, I’ve put together a list of affirmations for students from teachers for a couple of reasons;
- The first is that teaching is tough, I know this first hard. So, finding good motivational techniques can go a long way to helping both teachers and students succeed.
- The second is that being a student is tough, I also know this first hand! I also know how important and influential the right affirmations can be to personal academic success.
Hopefully, you’ll find the perfect affirmations in these lists for both you and your students.

Why Affirmations Are Important to Students and Teachers
Using affirmations in the classroom is a technique a lot of teachers have used and seen it help students make improvements academically, socially, and personally.
It helps to create an environment where students support one another and builds confidence. As well as strengthening the relationship between teachers and students.
Using affirmations helps change students’ attitudes, makes them more aware and mindful, and ultimately helps them absorb information better.
