I’d been planning the date for weeks. Sixteen weeks, to be exact. I knew the train schedule, the cost of a ticket, the exact table I’d wanted to reserve at the candlelit restaurant by the coast. There was just one issue. I hadn’t asked Jess yet.
Teachers Aren't Heroes
Teachers are not heroes. Don’t worry. I’m a teacher. I can say that. Sure, teachers deserve respect and appreciation, probably even much more than the majority of us currently receive. A lot of us are busting our butts and emptying our wallets and baring our souls every day. So thank us, and send us gifts, and teach your children to listen to us, and shoot us encouraging emails, and give us discounts on Teacher Appreciation Day, and please, please, PLEASE show up on Back To School night.
