Like all professions, teaching has both those who are outstanding and those who are less than adequate. All too often, the best and the worst are lumped into generalizations which do not accurately depict either extreme.
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7-11. It offers a time for us to recognize the teaching profession as a whole. It also offers each of us the opportunity, on a personal level, to single out that individual who made a lasting impression on us.
You have read this post, watched the video, and I would image are thinking about a particular teacher who made a lasting impression on you. Does this teacher have any idea the impact he or she made in your life? If not, what do you intend to do about it?
With social media being what it is today, reaching out to someone else has never been easier. With this week being "Teacher Appreciation Week," there is no better time than now.
