A sample of the exceptional instructors at Voice One.
A post of appreciation, by Sally Clawson
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! What a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge some of the most exceptional and generous people on the planet - teachers!
I own and run a voice over school and feel exhilarated to be able to give thanks for the instructors at our school and beyond, because I know first hand the challenges of teaching. A teacher has to be well-planned but spontaneous; listening but leading; present but seven steps ahead; and engaging in a daily practice of dexterity, creativity, flexibility and patience.
I imagine all of us can think of a handful of teachers across our lives that helped us discover, recognize, and grow parts of ourselves we never could have on our own. Have you had an opportunity to thank them? What would you say? I would say that I see you. I see you at the height of your career humbling yourself to share your knowledge with others who want what you have. I see you staying beyond your paid hours to answer questions and offer encouragement and guidance. I see you going out of your way to email, message, or follow up with a student who was absent or late or unclear. And I see you tirelessly and generously break down a concept in order to build up the skills, talent, and knowledge of others.
Dear teacher, you are increasing the happiness, meaning, confidence, and opportunity of a person's life on a daily basis. It's inspiring and invigorating to witness, and the sole reason that our school continues to grow and create a community of happy, flourishing, gifted and proud voice actors. Thank you for your commitment, your openness, your generosity and most especially your humor. My life is changed by you, I can only imagine how deeply you change those who learn from you.
