With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, the Educator’s Ally team thought we’d share a little-known secret about teachers – people who marry them are the happiest.
Why? Our friends at THINK ALOUD break it down for you.
Take a look at 10 wonderful reasons why marrying a teacher is the BEST.
Teachers are patient.
They can listen carefully for hours. Sometimes, they are explaining something for the tenth time without getting annoyed. They are the most patient and understanding people around for sure. And they will always offer people the support if they need. So, in their relationships, they are going to give time and attention to their special person. Teachers will never make you feel silly or embarrassed.
Teachers are selfless.
They can’t help this, but they will always put their students first. They are willing to sacrifice their time and energy to help and support their students. This means that they will miss their lunch just to explain one more time to students something they didn’t understand.
When it comes to their relationship, teachers will go above and beyond for their partner just to make them happy. They will always take care of you and be there for you.
Teachers always see the bright side.
They are always positive, no matter how awful their day was. They will be able to smile like nothing is wrong. Teachers can forgive and forget and put any disagreement behind. Each day they begin refreshed and from an uplifting perspective. People who marry teachers continually are around positivity. That’s why the happiest people end up marrying teachers.
Teachers are pros at handling crazy situations.
They have seen it all, from bathroom fights to broken noses. In order to avoid any disaster, they jump into action and get things shifted and perfected.

Teachers are super responsible. They will make sure to never be late and never leave anything until the last minute. Their partner is always their priority.
