I found this short video (3 mins, 40 secs) about the importance of teachers on a blog that I like, spiritbath.com. Some of the people that I admire the most are or were teachers. My dad taught 31 years at the same junior high school and I have heard kind comments from his former students my entire life. One of my aunt’s was a teacher and then a school psychologist and my other aunt is a special needs teacher. My sister also teaches special needs students and my oldest niece is in school to do the same. As such, I have always had a lot of respect for teachers and believe that their vocation is extremely vital, yet often under-appreciated.
