It's Teacher Appreciation Week! Thank A Teacher!

This is Teacher Appreciation Week (May 2-6) and today is Teacher Appreciation Day!  Without doubt, teaching is both one of the most important and one of the most underrated and underpaid professions in our society. I've been fortunate to have had some wonderful and unforgettable teachers from 1st grade through college and graduate school. I've also considered myself fortunate to have worked with clients who are fabulous teachers. Let's not forget to recognize and thank our hard-working and dedicated teachers in the days to come.

I've always said that John F. Kennedy had a way with words. And his words on teachers and education still ring so true today 50+ years later (sadly so, if you pay attention to the first quote).

 

“Modern cynics and skeptics see no harm in paying those to whom they entrust the minds of their children a smaller wage than is paid to those to whom they entrust the care of their plumbing.” 
John F. Kennedy 

“Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource.” 
John F. Kennedy 

“Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.” 
John F. Kennedy
