Every year, the first full week in May is devoted to showing our nation's teachers that we value the time and effort they devote to our children. This year, National Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6 through May 10. But is one week a year enough?
Once we've left the grades and the school politics behind, it's easy to forget that without teachers, success wouldn't be a possibility. Teachers are the ones who encourage us to dream and endow us with the knowledge to make our dreams reality. Every day, teachers take on the task of inspiring and creating the future.
But, for all their energy and time, generally teachers are overworked, under-appreciated and underpaid. Make a point to thank a teacher who has made a difference in your life.
