Teacher Appreciation Day

Celebrating Teacher Appreciation Day

Hands down, Teachers are special people.  Today, May 7, 2024 we celebrate YOU!

Without Teachers, we would not be able to read this blog right now! In fact you wouldn't be able to add, subtract, create a grocery list, or even address an envelope ... there are so many things we can do today, for that matter.

Here are some quotes to bring attention to the results and process of teaching. 

"Teaching kids to count is fine, but teaching them what counts is best."

--Bob Talbert

Teacher Appreciation 001

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."

--Benjamin Franklin

"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

--Wayne Dyer

Teacher Appreciation 002

"The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you."

--B.B. King

"No one is perfect. That's why pencils have erasers."

--Wolfgang Riebe

Teacher Appreciation 003

"Information may be free, an education is priceless."

--Marie Forleo


 

Teachers change lives! 

So let's celebrate those who teach today!

Yes!  I still have such good memories of Teachers I had.  One in particular became a life-long friend and made a fabulous impact in my life during my most vulnerable years of young adulthood.  Forever Thankful!  Thank you for your comment Michael Elliott

Good morning, Diana... what a wonderful post for Teacher Appreciation Week. It takes a very special person to be a teacher... that's why I've never been one.

Nina Hollander, Broker you are too funny!  You are a teacher in your own right ... everything you do, say and wherever you go ... you are teaching something!  Now ... pat yourself on the back for all you do everyday!  I appreciatre YOU!

Diana Dahlberg thanks for that nice comment, Diana. I don't think of myself as a teacher, but you have a point. I think I've always thought of myself as more of a mentor. Then again, maybe that's a difference with no distinction!

Nina Hollander, Broker ... From gentwenty.com:  The key difference is that while a teacher's role may be limited to the classroom, a mentor's role extends beyond the classroom and into the realm of life!

Diana Dahlberg that is so true, Diana. I'm proud to say that two of the new agents I mentored some 20 years ago are still in the business and doing very well.
