National Teacher Appreciation Week

I’ve heard it said many times that teaching is not a respected profession in the US, which is one of the reasons we’re falling behind in terms of education.

Here’s your chance to change that.

This week is National Teacher Appreciation Week (I know, the link is about yesterday, but it’s the whole week).

It’s half over, but there’s still plenty of time – the internet is fast. Thank a teacher.

 

To Bob Cooley, who believed in the power of The Odyssey,

To Lisa Schmitt, who didn’t tell us what we were trying was impossible,

To Wayne Roberge, whose humility continues to inspire me,

To too many others to name.

Thank you.
