Yet another national celebration, today is the last day of Teacher Appreciation Week. If you know a special teacher, thank them for the work they do.
I married a teacher: a dedicated education professional whose commitment to teaching and lifelong learning helped him earn a graduate degree in education at age 35; gave him a career in both middle school and high school teaching geography, the subject he loves; and allows him the opportunity to train more teachers through his work with graduate students in education. Rock on, Mr. Katz!
If you have fond memories of a teacher who made a great impact on you, it's not too late to thank them. I reconnected with my high school French teacher a few years ago and took her out for lunch. Merci, Mlle. Cirelli, for teaching me!
