National Teacher Appreciation Day!
I would like to urge that we observe this National Teacher Appreciation Day by taking time to recognize and acknowledge the impact of teachers in our lives. A great many teachers deserve our thanks not only today, but every day of the year. For they not only teach our children the three Rs or reading, writing, and arithmetic, but also encourage each to explore our world and us through literature, science, technology, philosophy, music, sports, and the arts, as well as how to learn all those countless life lessons along the way.
We ask much of teachers today and if you were ever to ask, most would only wish to receive a simple but sincere, Thank you. For they teach not for money or for fame, but to fan the flame of curiosity within the hearts and minds of our young people. This I know for certain, for you see while I am not a teacher of school age children myself, my husband has been for over three decades and my daughter is currently in her first years of teaching of what will hopefully be a life long career.
As an observer of all that teaching entails, I can tell you what an earnest thank you can do for a teacher. It can be that much needed encouragement in difficult times. It can be the difference between going in early and calling in sick. It can be the reason to keep trying instead of feeling like giving up. It can be the assurance that all of their efforts are not in vain. Thank a teacher today or whenever you get the chance to personally say, “We appreciate you for all that you do for the betterment of all. Thank you!”
