Each day, teachers come to school to tackle a job that is critically important, extraordinarily complex, often joyful, and, at times, heartbreaking. In essence, teachers help others to become their best selves and I can think of no more important work.

The quote above is by former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Starkey Duncan and it couldn’t be more true. The role of a teacher in a student’s life is very important, because teachers are given the most difficult task, which is to shape the minds of our future generations. Teachers are people to look up to and emulate. Nearly everyone has a teacher (in many cases, quite a few teachers) who they admired and who provided them with an example of how to conduct themselves. 

On this National Teachers Day, let us celebrate this noble profession by giving teachers the recognition that they truly deserve.
