What I’m Thinking – June 6

I was thinking this morning about how to thank some incredible people for helping to shape my kids not only in mind, but in spirit.

It’s not enough to be amazed by your own kids’ growth and achievement. Knowing that it took a few dozen teachers and quality school leaders to build a school environment like the one my kids attended.

In an age where our national leaders show less character than we would hope our kids to have, we are grateful for the adults in their lives who show them a better way to lead. By their example, they are kind, respectful, and fair. They hold themselves and their students to high standards. They help them see their actions have consequences and rewards. They encourage them to take risks and to get involved.

How does a parent really thank teachers for doing the job of a superhero?
