Teacher Appreciation


As many of my readers know, I recently left my full time teaching position in order to have more time at home with my (now one-year-old) son.  It was a very difficult decision because I loved my job, but four months later I know for sure it was the right decision for my family.  I now work part time as a Title 1 Math Tutor in an urban district and I love it.  It is such an honor to be able to take on a role that helps both teachers and students.  I see how hard these teachers work everyday.  The odds are against many with a community plagued by drugs and violence.  On Teacher Appreciation Week – and always – I just want to say that I see all of the wonderful things that are happening.

To the math teacher who stays in during lunch to help students finish their work, I see you and you are making a difference.

To the health teacher who is sending positive messages about life, health, and good decisions, I see you and you are making a difference.

To the innovative teachers who are trying technology that their students are more comfortable with than they are, I see you and you are making a difference.

To the dedicated professionals who come in before and after school to make sure each students gets the academic help they need, I see you and you are making a difference.

To the writing teachers who inspire students by providing relevant albeit controversial topics, I see you and you are making a difference.

To all teachers – today and always – it is really easy to get caught up in the day-to-day grind.  Know that what you are doing is important.  You may even change someone’s life.  Keep chugging along.  I hope you will take a minute to realize the enormity of what you do.  I see you and you are making a difference.
