To all the teachers in my life, thank you! For being a supportive and caring colleague who inspires me and encourages me to be my best every day. For guiding and loving my children in your care, encouraging them to be their best and helping them through their struggles, finding the best ways to engage and teach them. For all the times you didn’t get any sleep because you were worrying about a student or trying to figure out how you could connect with them. For the sacrifices you make in your personal and family lives so the youth today can play on school sports teams, travel to other countries and make friends and memories and gain life skills during lunch and after school clubs and programs. For all of these and the other things you do that may go unrecognized, thank you!
