Thank you, teachers, for my kids

My kids aren't kids any more. They are in their thirties. I have eleven grandchildren, two of whom finished Kindergarten this week. It made me think back to my own kids' schooling.

I was thinking about my daughter, Kristin's, schooling.

I'm grateful for the teacher who had them make pilgrim costumes for Thanksgiving (I love that picture!)

I'm grateful to the teachers who taught her how to read and write, even though spelling was a bit of a challenge for a while.

I'm grateful to her math teachers and the chance to write a Hypercard program for her to practice arithmetic while she sat on my lap. 

I'm grateful for the teacher who taught her chemistry and was the reason Kristin and I sat on the couch going through flash cards of the elements.

I'm grateful to the teacher who had her make that hurricane project...I've never seen so much cotton in one place.

I'm grateful to her soccer coaches, softball coaches and cheerleading coaches.

I'm grateful for her opportunity and coaching to be a Lake Highlands Highlandette.

I'm grateful to her teachers for her academic education and for helping her to learn about life.

There are so, so many things that our children get from their schools and their teachers that go far beyond what their parents can give them. To all her teachers, coaches, counselors and the rest, Kristin's dad says thank you.
