It's Teacher Appreciation Week! I'm blessed to know many fantastic teachers who work tirelessly with their students. They don't work a normal 8 hour day. They are in the schools late at nights, early in the mornings and there on weekends. They bring food so their students can concentrate and hear over their stomachs rumbling because they're hungry. They purchase supplies out of their own pockets so their students have what they need.

In the younger grades they wipe noses, dry tears, tie shoelaces. They teach children how to line up in single file, how to keep their hands to themselves. In older grades they stay late at night to cheer on their students in games, plays and concerts. In all grades they have the patience of saints

Thank you to all the Teachers! You are paid no where what you are worth!
