Teachers are some of the most important people on the planet. And I am not just saying that because my mom is a teacher. Being tasked with educating future generations is no small responsibility. For that insanely significant role, teachers should be paid much more than they are. Almost everyone I know has at least one story of a wonderful thing a teacher did for them that they will never forget.
My first-grade teacher sent me home with book after book after book once she realized I was a reader. My second-grade teacher invited us to his wedding! Really! We thought we were so special! There are countless other stories like this that people all over the world have and will cherish forever. The people of Twitter were recently asked to share them, and oh boy, did they ever! These stories of life-changing teachers will warm your heart, brighten your day, and maybe make you want to write to an old teacher of yours to thank them for everything they did for you. I personally think that’s a great idea.
