I mentioned yesterday that I was going to be posting thankful things every day this month. (Well, mostly daily. Sometimes I may combine a few days into one post. It’s all good.) If you’re up for the challenge of recognizing thankfulness this month, feel free to link up before. The link-up is going to be open through the end of November.
Day 2: I’m thankful for the good educators I’ve had in my life. When I was in high school, I was an assistant for one of my math teachers. As a teacher’s assistant, I helped make tests, grade quizzes and help students with math problems. It was during that time that I thought I wanted to be a math teacher when I grew up. (When I was in college, I changed majors when I made my first “B” in a math course. I was so naive.)
That teacher retired this past week. It just so happened that my husband has been working at her school for the past few years, so she – and several other teachers – have been keeping up with my life through him. I was able to see her (and other teachers) at a retirement party in her honor this weekend, and it was just really cool.
In this world of Facebook and other social media, have you reconnected with any former teachers? I’m Facebook friends with my 6th grade math teacher. It’s a little surreal.
