They shape the little minds of America, and yet sometimes treat children like the plague. Don’t get me wrong, there’s been a child or two I’ve wanted to drop-kick across the yard, but it is my thought that if you’re going to be a teacher you should generally enjoy the presence of children. So, when I’ve encountered a truly great teacher in my life I’ve always made it a point to remember them and check-in from time to time. It’s nice to remember that teachers are humans too, and every so often have a sense of humor. For this particular teacher, I thank you for doing a stellar job. You’re one of the great ones!
