Thanks to elementary principal Melinda Miller, I’m sharing this playlist of videos in honor of National Teacher Appreciation Week. I was in high school when I realized the impact that some of my teachers had on my life throughout childhood. The way they loved me and coached me through difficult times ultimately led me to dedicate my life to the same great – and demanding – profession. To those who teach, thank you for touching the future. Every decision you make in your day to day dealings with students has an impact on the future of each student and on the future of our great nation and world. Thank you for dedicating your life to a career that challenges us in mind, body, and spirit. May this be a week that you feel appreciated and honored!
