My Favorite Teacher
Having a daughter just graduate and getting ready to start a teaching career, makes you think about how important teachers really are to our future. I know several teachers and believe it is one of the most mis-understood and under appreciated professions out there. There are countless hours that are taken from teacher's personal lives to make sure that our children get the education they deserve; the education our children need to live their lives, better than ours. These children will be the people who take care of us, who find cures for the diseases that inflict us, who make the decisions to better our world. They need the best teachers we can find for them. With so many States looking to cut their budgets, teaching is the last place they should be looking!
As my daughter's graduation hat says, "If you can read this, thank a teacher"!
