Many know how valuable teachers are and we praise them for the hope they instill in the members of our future generation.
But teachers are much more than what they do in the classroom, especially the really great ones.
The work of a teacher does not cease when they leave school grounds. Countless hours are spent grading papers, searching for resources, and devising and preparing lesson plans for each school day.
Some teachers treasure the lives of their students as if they were their own children and invest so much of themselves to even just have one student believe they are capable of conquering the world!
Apart from being teachers, they have roles of a son or daughter, parent, sibling, partner, and friend. Quite frankly, someone who works as a teacher, which is almost a 24/7 job, and juggles all other aspects of their life is kind of a super human.
Annie, the brains behind the blog, has shared insightful posts related to teaching and what it is like working with children with developmental disabilities.
She may not frequent the blog, but that is because she works behind the scenes to make each of her lessons meaningful and effective.
Annie is also a Sunday school teacher at her home church, which doubles the teaching duties.
She is also devoted to her marriage, her family, and her friends and takes any free time she has to spend time with them.
Annie dedicates a lot of her own time to organizing and participating in events to advocate for her students and partakes in various continuing education opportunities to be an even greater source of wisdom and inspiration to those she teaches.
YOU ARE SUPER AMAZING!!
Keep inspiring and doing what you do because you are changing lives…for the better!
Annie is a gem within a mine full of precious stones that shine hope into the lives of many. Take the time to show appreciation to the wonderful teachers you may know for they work harder than what is witnessed.
“Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.”
