Thank You, Teachers!
To celebrate and thank our teachers in honor of Teacher Appreciation Day, I reminisce about my school days and how much I gained from the teachers who made me who I am today. I have never been a fan of math, but my favorite teacher was a math teacher. He had a great sense of humor and made the class fun. I remember him telling many jokes about his short wife, who in fact is not short. I found this out firsthand when our paths crossed as I was interviewing for my first job out of college – she was the HR manager interviewing me! It was a bit distracting to see my high school math teacher in their family photo as I sat nervous in the chair across from her. All I could think was “You’re not that short”… Yes, I did learn my geometry and algebraic equations in his class as well, but what I remember most was his carefree nature. (sidenote: I did get that job!)
Of course, my favorite teacher today is my husband, ironically also a math teacher. I admire his patience and professionalism that he brings to the classroom and parenting at home. Here’s a special thank you to all our teachers, for all you do for the children as you form their future.
