All Finished

Ahhh, it's June 7th, 2008 and I am finally finished for the summer! I have never admired and respected teachers more than I have these past two years and it is for that reason that I say Thank You.

Thank you to all the teachers out there who thanklessly do their job, despite low pay, low teacher supply rooms (many, many teachers out there have to pay for their own paper, pencils, etc.), and sometimes difficult working conditions. Thank you to all the teachers who remain patient, calm, and loving in their words despite these above conditions. Thank you to all my high school, elementary, and middle school teachers that I didn't appreciate, thank, or always speak kindly to. Thank you to all the parents in the world who tirelessly support teachers decisions, drive on field trips, and teach their children strong values. Thank you to all the administrators who work hard to support teachers decisions and reinforce them to parents. Thank you to all the students who make coming to work worth it, who fight to make good choices, and who take responsibility for their own learning, even when it means seeking out help when they need it. And finally, thank you to the friends and family of teachers who never utter those dreaded words that teachers hear FAR TOO OFTEN: "Yeah, but you get to go into work at 9 and leave at 3:30 everyday!"

Hehe! I completely agree! Unfortunately, you would be surprised to find out how often I hear it.
