I received this beautiful statement to honor teachers on World Teachers Day. That was October 5. Funny, the day passed unnoticed in the U.S.

It was sent to me on Twitter by Pedro De Bruyckere.

Read this, stand tall, and understand how lucky you are to be a teacher.

It starts like this:

“Teachers are no superheroes

They won’t save the world.

But they will save their children in case of emergency.

They are authors who write new works every single day.

They are directors of their own plays…..”

Teachers: Admired by all except for the knuckleheads and trolls who leave snarky comments on blogs and by legislators who dream up ways to demoralize teachers, perhaps because teachers are held in higher esteem than legislators and add more social value.
