May 2 thru May 6 is Teacher Appreciation Week.

I wanted to urge everyone to say thank you ... to the retired teachers for their years of dedication and caring, thank you to the present teachers, especially during these political times ...

And to young adults who feel that their true calling is teaching, please do not be discouraged. ...

— Ann Pahlas
