I’ve had the awesome privilege to be instructed by several great teachers in my lifetime. I’ve also had the honor of seeing several of my peers become teachers, and I hope to become one when I grow up. The good teachers don’t teach for the paycheck, they genuinely care about their student’s success, and often spend hours of their own time and plenty of their own money to help their kids succeed. They deal with overbearing, and under-bearing parents, administrators, and a whole host of other people to make sure their kids get the best education possible.
If you weren’t aware, today is Teacher Appreciation Day in the good ole USofA, so if you happen to know a teacher or two, make sure you take the time today to thank them for educating the next generation.
