OK - That proves it... you certainly are a teacher. And, a nice one at that. Only a cool female teacher that's into kids would quote that saying!

Wifey B: Thanks. I'm proud to be a teacher even if not formally teaching today. I do a bit of program design and teaching teachers. It's not all success stories, but the reward of working with children is just incredible. I have one teacher friend who moved here from NC not long after we did. We still get together and "talk teacher".

This is a boating forum. I'm only a teacher in the classroom. Well, not only a teacher there, but only an English Teacher there.
I am lucky enough to be married to a teacher. I am not going to call any names but FF dispises your profession. He was born reading and doing basic math, self made. No stinking teacher does he need to thank.

I am a telephone man, I worked hard my whole working life. BUT nothing like the multitude of teachers I have known. 12 hours after grading papers was the NORMAL day.

Thank you for what you have done.

My mother retired from teaching "special-classes" for challenged children at 80 yrs age - in Maine. Went back to college in her 40's at Hofstra in NY, got her masters... began teaching in her early 50's. She worked so hard; loved it too!
