SO Grateful!

Between my four fabulous kiddos there are a total of about 20-25 teachers who work incredibly hard every single day to help them learn, grow, and develop!  I really wish I could tell them THANK YOU verbally and in tangible form every single day.

I feel so grateful and blessed that each of my children have adults who are capturing their hearts, making educationally sound decisions, and challenging them to reach their true potential.  It's NOT easy to be a teacher.  Let me say that again.  It's NOT easy to be a teacher.  It is demanding, strenuous, overwhelming, and the list can go on and on and on.  Teaching is simply not for the faint of heart.

However, it's also one of the most rewarding jobs (if not the most rewarding) in the universe.  When I was teaching it seemed like the breaks with my family arrived at just the right time!  While I loved being in the classroom, spending time on breaks to renew my energy helped me to continue on the journey!  I'm wishing all the teachers out there a very Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope you have a full week of relaxation, rest, delicious food, and time for yourself!  Hang in there. . .just one more day!
