“The women I know with strong personalities, the ones who might have become generals or the heads of companies if they were men, become teachers. Teaching is a calling, too. And I’ve always thought that teachers in their way are holy–angels leading their flocks out of the darkness.” Jeannette Walls, Half Broke Horses Today is my daughter, Kira’s, birthday and she is a teacher. This post is in honor of her birthday. A teacher influences our future and the impact is far reaching. It’s a true blessing to have good teachers in our country teaching our children. Thank you, Kira, and thank you all teachers everywhere.
