You know how they say you may not always remember the designer of the dress you were dying to have at age 16, or the name of that has-been actor you met once outside a club, but you’ll always remember the names of the teachers who truly taught you in life?
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week in the United States. Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) across the country are holding activities to encourage respect and strengthen support of teachers and the profession. Teacher Appreciation Week was founded in 1984 and is held annually during the first full week of May.
So go ahead, reconnect with that teacher of yours who really made a difference. It’s never been easier to track down your childhood real-life heroes: give your old school a call, or search for their names on Facebook.
