The glass is indeed half full.

And, yes, you are making a difference.

My first grade teacher, Marjorie Cummings, just passed away on April 4 at age 98. She was my teacher 44 years ago. And I never forgot the sense of being part of the group that she gave me even though I was the only minority in my school.

Teachers do count. And good ones make a lifetime of difference.

On behalf of your students 44 years from now, I say thank you.


"Significant gains are relative." Thank you for that pithy reminder that we need to keep our eyes open so we can see the little things, rather than being blinded by the big ones. :-)
