Did you know that this week is National Teacher Appreciation Week?
This poster is from the P. T. A. site. If you have children in school, they have other neat items you can get to tell teachers how much you appreciate them. Here's the link.
My boys are grown and gone and have children of their own. One of my sons is a teacher, one daughter-in-law is a teacher, and a granddaughter is a teacher, so we have some in the family.
I taught in elementary school for twenty years and loved it. Kids are great. Not perfect, but they are honest with you most of the time. It's really odd that I decided to become a teacher. I was not the best student in school. Average, I suppose you'd call me. I hated to read. Yeah, imagine that. My favorite subject was band. Not much reading involved there.
I won't bore you with my story of how a non-reader became a teacher and then a writer. But I thank my teachers for all they did for this reluctant student. Now, I'm retired from teaching. And loving it. You know what else, I often meet former students I had in third or fifth grade, and they always remember me. Is that good or bad?
