I thought this was appropriate now that school is back.
I just want say a big, "BRAVO!" to all the teachers I know.
You are all amazing! You deserve your holidays. You deserve a pay rise.
The amount of crap you have to put up with from the Education Department, students and parents....I would have gone insane! (Most of my friends who are teachers say it is the 'My Johnny is an angel' parents who cause the most stress).
Keep going! Don't let the love for your subject be destroyed. The teachers I loved the most when I was at school were the ones who were passionate about their subject, and that passion was infectious. Don't let the jerks win.
So to all of my friends who are teachers or ex-teachers.....thank you! I don't have kids at school, but I was a student once and I can see that what you do makes this world a better place.
There should be an international Hug a Teacher Day.
