Teachers . . .

This is dedicated to all you teachers who will be
returning to the classroom soon.
It's also dedicated to all of us who are retired teachers.
I kept this quote on my refrigerator for years.
I always feel warm and fuzzy when I read it.


Most of us end up with no more than five or six people who remember us. Teachers have thousands of people who remember them for the rest of their lives.   ~ Andy Rooney

My daughter is a teacher, looking for a job. My heart aches for her when she looks online to see if any jobs have been posted. She really wants her own classroom!

I had many really good teachers and some that stood head and shoulders above the rest. I was reminded of several of them recently while doing a bit of reminiscing with some of my friends.

Many of my former students are grown men and women and have become facebook friends. How cool is that.

It's hard to believe that school is about to begin again! Where did the summer go?
Hope it's a great year for all :)
