It’s back-to-school time– the time of year that couldn’t come sooner for parents, but that is way too soon for teachers and school staff. Teachers are so excited about the school year and to meet their students, but they do need all the time they can get to recover from the previous school year. Teaching is one of the best, and most mentally and emotionally draining, professions there is, just ask any teacher. But, what most people don’t realize is how physically demanding teaching is, and how it can be, especially if you teach elementary school, a combination of “American Ninja Warrior” and “America’s Got Talent.” Every day teachers give their hearts, souls, and money to their students because they care so much, and, unfortunately, far too often they are forced to spend their own money on school supplies. This reminds me, if you have an amazing teacher in your life (and I am sure you do), it is never too early to thank a teacher, but it can be too late. So track them down, reach out to them, and tell them how much they mean to you. It will mean more to them than you will ever know. But I digress, to give back to teachers and school staff who already give so much to others.
