I probably don’t tell her enough, but I am beyond-words proud of the lady that looked me in the eye on that July afternoon and said, “I do.”

She’s a public school teacher at that. And she is part of the most under-appreciated, misunderstood and wrongly maligned profession in the world today.
Obviously, there are some people working in classrooms who probably should be doing something else. That’s true with any profession. But don’t lump the vast majority in the basket with the bad apples.
