Amazing, isn’t it? Have you ever really thought about what you do every day? What you teach, the lives you change, the destinies you help shape, all from a bunch of little black dots on a page of white, and a person who cares more than others can conceive. We call them teachers. Those people who selflessly dedicate their lives to a profoundly fantastic journey. May the journey of your teaching be as magnificent and full of wonder as those students with whom you share it.
