My second grade teacher, Mrs. Claas was gentle and patient.
My high school English teacher Mr. White pushed me to think about literature in new and deeper ways.
My journalism teacher and mentor Mr. Harrell believed in me more than any other teacher. When I signed my book deal, I was sure to send him a note, knowing he would be proud.
I’m so thankful for the kind, wise teachers that God put in my life. I appreciate every one of them – well, except for my first-grade teacher, but that is a story for another day.
Now as a parent, I have an even deeper appreciation for teachers and they way they love the children they teach. It isn’t just about the ways that the directly pour into in their students’ education and well-being, it is all the additional time and resources they invest. Teaching truly is an incredible ministry.
With Teacher Appreciation Week just around the corner (May 5-9) I have been thinking a lot about how to bless the teachers at my children’s preschool.
