Happy Teacher Appreciation Week

It's Teacher Appreciation Week, which is a great opportunity to thank those very special individuals who sacrifice so much to ensure the next generation will be capable of supporting all of us in our old age. Being a teacher is more than a job; it's more than a career; being a teacher is a calling. It's an opportunity to make a difference in the life of a young person. 
I still remember my sixth grade teacher, Mr. Gammie. He truly believed in me and encouraged me to apply myself. It was in his class that I learned to love learning. He made such an impact in my life that I traveled across Calgary, Alberta on the public bus (a two-hour trip) with my best friend to visit Mr. Gammie and his wife, after the school year ended. They were incredibly gracious to us and treated us to fresh-squeezed lemonade on the front patio of their house. I have since wondered what he thought when we showed up on his doorstep, but I'm so grateful that he, and his wife, were so incredibly gracious and kind to us.
If you are currently a student, make sure you take the time to thank your teacher(s) for what they do. If you're a parent, encourage your children to thank their teachers and make the effort to thank them yourself. Finally, if you know a teacher, thank that person for their commitment to make a difference in the life of a child.
If you're a teacher, take ten minutes to watch the following Ted Talk. It's definitely worth it, and it may give you the little push you need to get through the rest of the school year. Rita Pierson: Every kid needs a champion
To all the teachers out there - thank you so very much for everything you do! Thank you for making a difference and dedicating your life to the next generation - you're the best!

Thank you, Dr. Sheri, for your public acknowledgement of teachers. I, too, was inspired to pursue a career in this field by teachers who supported my learning in school many years ago when I was a student. I love being an educator, and the fact that I can make a difference in the life of a student. And I very much appreciate the fact that I have had so many opportunities to work alongside and continue to learn from so many AMAZING teachers!
