Quote of the Day (Bruce Lowry, on the Sacrifices and Impact of Teachers)

“[M]ost of us have no idea of the sacrifice teachers make, or the challenges, big and small, they face, or the difference that they make, today, tomorrow, and perhaps years from now, on their students’ lives.”— Bruce Lowry, “Let Us Pause to Pay Tribute to Our Teachers,” The Bergen Record, May 20, 2018

Attached is a photo of one of the most famous—and dramatic—teacher-student stories in history: Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan, the relationship immortalized in the play and movie The Miracle Worker

But each one of us has had at least one teacher who has affected us for the rest of our lives. The luckiest of us will have a good deal more.

Today wouldn’t be a bad day to say "Thank you" to them. In fact, any day of the year would do.
