Daily Inspiration: Back to School Time Reminds us that Teachers Matter

Teaching ranks high in the most under-appreciated professions available. Those who choose to enter this field, do so for their desire to spread information and help the next generation become the best they can be.

Unfortunately, many teachers also exit the profession because the gift of the job itself doesn’t outweigh the obstacles. Poor pay and lack of resources are the top reasons that teachers take their talents outside of the field of teaching.

For the teachers that do stay, they deserve as much community support as they can get. Parents, the school board and members of the surrounding community can help. Giving the next generation of the best and the brightest all the tools they need is not easy.   If you know a teacher—use or gather your resources to show your appreciation for the work that they do. Make this school year the best one yet for your local community.
