Grab your tissues because this video from Joe Beckman about the amazing impact of teachers will hit you in the feels! Beckman’s YouTube channel focuses on human connection, particularly when it comes to teachers, parents, and students.

“Sometimes you might know the ones you’re impacting and sometimes you don’t.”

Beckman tearfully talks about his daughter’s struggle with childhood anxiety and depression that caused her to miss 25 days of school in fourth grade. Then a strong connection with her 5th-grade teacher, Ms. Patty, turned it all around for her. She missed zero days because of depression that year.

Every teacher has the power to be a Ms. Patty to someone, Beckman stresses. He pleads with teachers to understand the ripple effect they have on students goes farther than the eye can see.
