I know that Teacher Appreciation Week is a few months away, but this article in the Washington Post really struck a chord with me. It is a blessing and a privilege for teachers, administrators, and other school staff to be able to spend time with our nation’s most valuable resource: our children. They make us smile, they make us laugh, at times they make us pull our hair, and they make us proud. But not just anyone can spend all day every day working with children – it takes a very special person to do that. For someone who doesn’t work in education, it is hard to imagine everything that goes on inside of a classroom or a school – there are so many moving pieces! It’s important to remember that each of those moving pieces is a child with his own gifts, interests, hopes, and dreams. It’s also important to appreciate those who can tap those gifts, understand those interests, foster those hopes, and inspire those dreams – our teachers. Please take a few minutes to read the article and, when you have a minute to spare, take a few minutes to let your child’s teachers know how much you appreciate them.
