This morning I’ve been thinking about my two sisters in Pennsylvania and my son-in-law here in Connecticut. All are wonderful educators. As one who is no longer a full-time teacher but still spends a great deal of time visiting classrooms across this great country, I want to send out a note of gratitude. To all educators everywhere, all grade levels and all subjects–thank you. This time of the school year becomes a bit hectic. Just remember that you are a beacon of hope for our future, our children. Keep the faith.
