    Being a former teacher, I had a good chuckle from this blog.
    Good teachers are often not appreciated for the work they do.
    Like in every profession we have the good and bad and dedicated and undedicated.
    Let's show our appreciation for the dedicated teachers who put up with a lot more today than we ever did 40 years ago in the classroom.
