The Ultimate Teacher Motivation Speech


Our free written speech gives you the words of wisdom to thank a teacher and it is “child’s play” to adapt this speech template to suit all schools – in fact adapting it to suit most corporate businesses would pretty much be child’s play too.

A heart-felt thanks is all it takes to make someone feel special! So – go on…make their day!


Aristotle tells us that we are the sum of our actions and motivation. His words resonate with me personally. As a teacher I appreciate the premise that an individual’s cumulative actions can result in a fantastic end product. At [insert name of School], we have taken this even further. We have taken action this year and we have done so collectively and I can only pay tribute to the outcome. We have had a remarkable year at [insert name of School] and the school has grown from strength to strength.

Traditionally, many would see one of my roles as a teaching and leading role. I have been fortunate this year to learn a great deal myself. I have learned that [insert name of School] is the sum of all our actions and that each child, parent, teacher, staff member and Board of Governors have all acted together to further enhance and develop motivation and excellence in our School.

I have seen our Board of Governors giving focused and knowledgeable expertise to provide solid financial and strategic direction for [insert name of School].  I have witnessed our Parents Association and indeed our parents, giving selflessly and enthusiastically in a fellowship, fund raising and supportive role. We are grateful for the positive, motivating role that they have played this year.

I have continued to learn that the teachers at [insert name of School] are a remarkable group of individuals whose collective actions deserve our thanks and admiration. We need to find the words to thank a teacher and to pay tribute to their actions and teacher motivation in the classroom, on the sports field, culturally and musically and probably most importantly, the guiding and nurturing role that they play on a daily basis in their students’ lives.

[insert name of School]’s  boys and girls have also contributed to a most successful year. Through their actions they have shown motivation in the classroom and grasped the opportunities available to them with both hands.  They have worked hard and played straight and they have been fine ambassadors to the School, their parents and most importantly – to themselves.

We are all destined to make choices and those choices do largely control our actions. I am most fortunate and grateful that [insert name of School] is filled with so many motivated people who make positive choices, which ultimately lead to so many meaningful and productive actions.

Robert J. Havighurst has the following words to thank a teacher and quotes for motivation in education.  He says that the two basic processes of education are knowing and valuing.  I know how motivated and committed everyone is to [insert name of School] and I value each and every stake holder’s input and determined motivation in the classroom and in the broader school community.

My warmest thanks to you – one and all.
