Can’t Let Summer Start Without Sharing a Little Love to All Who Teach

“Wow, that 180 days flew by!” – said no one ever.

180 days. The school year only appears to be an abbreviated year, amirite? In all my years, I have never heard a teacher, principal, custodian, school secretary, or parent wish for more time at the end of the school year.

Quite simply, it’s grueling, physically and emotionally. It doesn’t matter if you are a classroom teacher or teach in the hallway or school office, the body and heart requires a few weeks of not thinking about lessons and uniforms and supplies and if little Remy has food at home.

So…

For those who have instructed, counseled, organized, praised, admonished, yelled, cried, hugged and loved…

For those who have dipped into personal coffers to ensure students are fed, clothed, and equipped for learning…

For the target of attacks from students, parents, community and White House leadership…

For the workday that ends when exhaustion says it ends…

For those who believed in the babies despite overwhelming circumstances…

For the teachers, certified and otherwise, who leave it all on the field the entire 180 days…

Thank you for your boundless energy, care, and love.

Enjoy your summer, refuel, and return stronger.
