Whether you are a teacher of quilting, sewing, or educating the youth of tomorrow, you are valued.
Today culminates the end of Teacher Appreciation Week. As a 40 year veteran as an elementary classroom teacher in our public school system, I celebrate with my fellow teachers. Though I retired this past December, my wonderful and rewarding career spanned 4 decades and touched the lives of thousands of young men and women. These children are now parents with little ones of their own and some are even grandparents. No other profession has the opportunity or the challenge to touch lives and make a difference than that of a teacher.
Congratulations to this year’s Collier County’s Golden Apple Teachers.
So if you teacher, whether it be in our schools today, classes on how to quilt, or teaching a friend how to sew, remember you too make a difference in someone’s life.
You should take time to thank a teacher today.
