By the way: if you did not already know, it’s Teacher Appreciation Week here in these United States of America. As much as most of us grow tired of schooling, and have infinite ideas on why we could do a better job than 90% of the teachers we ever had in our lifetime, let’s face it: few of us who have gotten to where we are today with the guiding hands of teachers steering us in the right direction. Even if you don’t ever share it, you should take a moment to appreciate an educator who has made a difference in your life today.
All right – cut the sentimental crap! Let’s get down to brass tacks.
