We all have a close friend or teacher in our family. They are the ones you just knew from a young age would go into the field. They wanted to share their love for knowledge, reading, history, math or other subject close to their heart. They had an affinity for helping others, or maybe those who needed special attention or care. Today, we thank those teachers for the work they do to prepare the next generation for life. We thank them for their long hours of work after the school day ends, or for sometimes dipping into their own pocketbook to make sure a student has lunch money or a jacket on a cold day. Thank You, Teachers is our way of recognizing the value of these educators in our lives.

Thank You, Teachers.
