In Praise of Teachers

In the midst of graduation preparations I decided to add another project to my list. My daughters both were fortunate to have been taught by a long list of caring, dedicated, wise teachers throughout their time in the public schools. As Rachel leaves high school I want to show our gratitude to the teachers there who helped to shape the person she and Hannah have become.

I stayed up into the wee hours a couple of nights ago painting a tribute piece to them. Along with card reproductions of this I'll be giving each amazing teacher some yummy chocolate to let them know just how sweet the high school experience was for both girls. Funny how both Hannah and Rachel have always been interested in going into education themselves. The Henry Adams quote on the front of the card reads "A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence will stop." Hannah and Rachel will make sure their influence continues for quite some time.
