This month being Teacher appreciation month, I want to send a special shot out to teachers everywhere. Hey hey hey!
Teaching is an art that is hard to master and rarely appreciated. However, I believe that teaching
and education of others is a truly joyous gift that is so crucial to the development of our youth and
evolution of the adult population. To properly impart knowledge on to another individual involves
much more than being knowledgeable. Really and truly a real instructor must understand how to
engage their students in the new subject matter and cement it in their memory. No easy matter!
Furthermore, the success of one’s teaching is intricately related to that individual’s personal
investment. Frequently, teachers lack the recognition deserved them and instead struggle with
the complaints of a voluminous few. Given their critical role in the development of our society’s
intellect, I have always been surprised by this under-appreciation. With the economic recession

that is needed to properly educate our youth. Please read more in this week’s LA Times
A great teacher is hard to find and I am certain that most of us have a recollect a select few in
our lifetimes. It seems limited funding and lack of attention is an unlikely way to increases their
Please celebrate teachers appreciation week by voicing your support in one way or another and
fight the current budget cut propositions.
