They come every year. Some handwritten. Some typed. Some emailed. Some short. Some long. In many ways, the one I received Friday was just like all the others. It was short - one sentence stating the intent to retire effective June 30, 2017. Yet, the letter said much more to me. Maybe it was because it was from someone I taught with. Maybe it was because I spoke with a student a few weeks ago who told me this teacher was one of his life’s greatest positive influences. Or maybe it was because I’ve seen so many great teachers give themselves joyfully, selflessly, and with no-regret to this profession. I’m not sure why. But this weekend, as I consider teacher appreciation week, I’m filled with profound pride to have watched and worked alongside so many outstanding people in this profession – people who live out our mission over a lifetime – leading by example and embracing social responsibility.
