Our Sophisticated Diva(s) of the week are the amazing teachers who work day in and out to give our students the best education possible. Take this time to appreciate the teachers who are working with your kids.
“Compassionate teachers fill a void left by working parents who aren’t able to devote enough attention to their children. Teachers don’t just teach; they can be vital personalities who help young people to mature, to understand the world and to understand themselves. A good education consists of much more than useful facts and marketable skills.”
There have been many teachers throughout my life who have influenced my life for the better. Being from NYC, we had the options to choose the public schools we wanted to attend rather than our zone schools, with the help of various teachers I was able to get into prestigious schools and obtain many opportunities that would inevitably lead me to where I am today. I am sure if others look back on their education, they can find one teacher who had a positive impact on their life such as I did.
“The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards.”
Thank you and continue the great work that you do.
