Today I'm joining bloggers across the country in honoring the victims of Friday's tragedy by with Thank a Teacher Today. With the busy pace of today's world, we rarely take the time to show our appreciation for those who have devoted themselves to our children. They care for our children for hours a day, helping them grow, learn, and stay safe. The beautiful people who lost their lives in Connecticut are a reminder of the hundreds of thousands of teachers who would do the same for your child.
Today–please take a moment to write a note, send an email, offer to volunteer, or anything you can do to thank a teacher in your life. I'll be following the movement on Twitter with hashtag #ThankATeacher, sharing how I'm participating and learning how others are thanking in their communities.
