    On the last day of school I emailed my favourite teacher a 'thank you' email, as he had helped me out so much through the year with some personal issues. However he responded today saying 'no problem, its my job' and now I just feel like he was only helping me because he has to, as part of his job, not because he actually wanted to help me.

    I don't know if I am overthinking this, but I was wondering: do teachers really care about their students? Or are they just being nice to us because they want to keep their jobs?

    You're overthinking this.

    He's a teacher, it's his job to teach you, but I should imagine he takes satisfaction in knowing he's helping kids learn.
