October 5th is World Teachers’ Day, and though I appreciate teachers every single day, I’m glad to have this day to shine a global spotlight on them! I’m also glad that Grammarly came up with one of their brilliant infographics to celebrate, too!
But first, a thank you to the teacher who taught me to love grammar and words and Shakespeare and reading and writing and…well, I think you get the picture. Technically, I never sat in my mom’s classrooms, but I learned from her every day of my life. And now that I think about it, I’m still learning from her. Mom–and all the teachers through the years–you may be gone but you’re never, ever forgotten!
Make a lasting impression. Be a teacher!
P.S. I loved many of those books and movies about teachers, but my favorite all-time teacher’s movie? To Sir With Love. Oh. My. Word. Sidney Poitier. Lulu singing that song? London in the 60’s? Okay, that’s it. I need a To Sir With Love break.
