Teacher Appreciation Week

This is Teacher Appreciation Week. Around my house that's just another term for Mother's Day but there is a teacher who I would like to honor. And that is Edwonk. He does a superb job on his blog and with the Carnival. I have learned alot from him. His attitude and dedication toward education is awesome.

Also, in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week I would like to repost

"What is a Teacher"

A teacher is someone who can...
--Give a hug without getting arrested.
--Bandage a knee without calling the school nurse.
--Change a lightbulb without calling the custodian.
--Make the children wash the bathrooms.
--Have a relationship with the principal without getting fired.
--Teach a child's mind while capturing their heart.
--Teach what they believe in and believe in what they teach.
--Meet the child's need and not worry about meeting the state guidelines.
--Commit to a lifetime of work without pay.
--Pray! in class, out loud, with the children and the ACLU can't say a word.

There is is only one that can fill that job description

A teacher is a mom

"Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and do not forsake your mother's teaching." Proverbs 1:8
