    My old teachers are all dead, some may have been while they were teaching me, it was hard to tell sometimes...

    I'm going to take this opportunity to thank YOU, @Eddie -- you are enriching kids lives every day, and rarely get any real "thanks" for it

    It's sad. Many of my old teachers are retired, and have passed away.

    It is nice to hear from former students and get a thank you. It really makes it worth while to be a teacher when a student contacts me to say that my class prepared him or her for college writing or for his or her career. That has happened 3 or 4 times over 10 years.

    Most of my teachers are retired, too. I did manage to get in touch with Mrs. Stanford, who was my favorite teacher in high school, a while back and let her know that she had a positive impact on my life. I think that's all we teachers really want, to know that we helped someone.

    I used to see my old deputy headmaster until he was well into his 90s.

    I'm pretty sure mine have all passed but definitely a thumbs up to all teachers.

    Happy National Teacher's day Eddie! You work hard sir, and I hope your PTA did something special. I know my girlfriend's PTA group here brought all the teachers a steak lunch yesterday.

    My wife is a teacher. I had flowers delivered to her at work today. I didn’t know it was teacher appreciation day. Oh well. Maybe next year.

    I played in a punk band in high school. We were the typical rebellious mohawk denim vest with offensive patches type.
    Many years later we all got together to form another band (not punk this time) and our high school music teacher came to support us, despite all the grief we must have given her as the class clowns. Much respect to her.

    I ran into an old woodshop teacher . He and his wife were in walmart. I told him he was appreciated in our community ;)

    His wife thanked me and said he needed that ;)

    My favourite teacher from high school joined the police. He left in my final year. I did look him up when I used to be on social media but couldn’t find him. Its a shame, he was a very inspiring guy and a good influence in my life.

    One or two teachers made an enormous difference in my life. This prejudiced me in favor of the profession.

    Then, alas, came the rest of them.

    Today I deeply honor everyone who is actually in a classroom teaching.

    Don't laugh ... but that's one of the reasons why I don't wear contacts. I just wear glasses ... people think I'm smart. ha ha. I got them fooled.
