I spaced it out yesterday, May 6, that it was National Teacher Day... and I wanted to make sure I took this moment in time to thank all the teachers out there for the hard work they do. As the son of a teacher (40+ years Dad,,, keep up the good work), I have learned second hand about how much a teacher goes through to prepare for each lesson, each class and each child.
I personally think that a lot of teachers are underappreciated for the jobs that they do... they are people that are not only helping to shape the future of the children, but our country as well. Teachers continue to work hard and in a lot of states, are usually not paid very well. I know the argument about only working 9 months out of the year and all that jazz, but honestly, these teachers do such a great job and I want to tell them how much I thank them for their efforts.
From Mrs. Zigler and Mrs. Christiansen (from C.C. Lee Elementary in Aberdeen, S. Dak.) to Doctor Arnold at Mississippi State University ... I thank all my past teachers throughout my life.
The National Education Association has set up a website to make the Nation's Largest Teacher Thank You Card and you can participate and help to make this the biggest card every by sending your thank you cards to the following address: www.teacherthankyoucard.org
From the above website, you can write a personal note about your favorite teacher through the years and why you think they did the best job.
My father is a math teacher, so I knew growing up I was going to have to do well in math, hence the reason why my brother and I are both working in math related fields. (my brother Scott, is a double engineering major in electrical and nuclear engineering--- LOTS OF MATH! and I am in the field of Meteorology --- LOTS OF MATH!) I always felt sorry for my mom growing up... she was stuck in the house with all of us "math nerds". Sorry Mom! LOL
