Dear Teachers

From my heart to yours...

The entire team here at Vooks appreciates all you do to educate children. For as long as I can remember, I personally have appreciated teachers. My grandmother was superintendent of the rural schools in our county and she made sure that from my birth, I was surrounded by books and raised to love reading, respect education, and appreciate teachers. As I reflect on the teachers I have had – from my kindergarten teacher in country school to the current professor in my PhD program, I appreciate each and every one and the part they have had in my education and the person I am. 

Becoming a teacher was my dream for as long as I can remember. I had the best teaching career ever! I loved teaching because of my students and the teachers I worked with and who mentored me. But there were days…and nights, that I wondered if my teaching was making a difference, if my students were learning, if it was all worth the effort. And then I would see a student’s face light up when they finally understood. I would get a thumbs up in the hallway. I would find a thank you note on my desk. I would receive a graduation announcement; a wedding invitation. I would read an article in the paper. And I knew – yes, it is well worth it.

At this time, as I thank the teachers who helped me make a difference in the world; I also want to thank you, the teachers of my children, my grandchildren, and the teachers of all children. You make a difference in the life of a child every single day.  I know at times teachers may feel underpaid, overworked, unappreciated, and that all they do is not making a difference. But please know, you do make a difference. You live in the hearts of so many for their lifetimes and although you may never know the differences you make – you do. For all you do, and for who you help children become – thank you! The world is a better place because of you. You are appreciated!
