Teachers face an uphill battle every day to help give our children the foundation they need to succeed in life. They have to go further and farther to keep our kids engaged in a digital age. Many teachers end up having to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars of their own money to get the necessary supplies to make their classes work. All this and we still can’t seem to always be there for them when it comes to funding and recognition. Next time you bump into a teacher, be sure to thank them for all they do. We have to do all we can to keep the good ones teaching.
