Thank a teacher today – Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Take a moment today to thank a teacher or two or three or four!

Teaching is a noble calling that few understand and many underappreciate.  The value that teachers give to the children of the world is in my humble opinion, immeasurable.  Teachers can impact one, a hundred, and even thousands of students to do great things and to become great people.  Their influence can last for many, many years and their lessons build the foundations of future generations.  Thank a teacher today!  HAPPY TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK!

Joanna Fuchs wrote an appropriate poem:

If I Could Teach You, Teacher

If I could teach you, teacher,
I’d teach you how much more
you have accomplished
than you think you have.
I’d show you the seeds
you planted years ago
that are now coming into bloom.
I’d reveal to you the young minds
that have expanded under your care,
the hearts that are serving others
because they had you as a role model.
If I could teach you, teacher,
I’d show you the positive effect
you have had on me and my life.
Your homework is
to know your value to the world,
to acknowledge it, to believe it.
Thank you, teacher.
