Appreciating the Unsung Heroes of Our Workforce: Teachers
May 9th, 2017 by David Minces
Where would we be without our teachers? That is the question everyone should be asking today, National Teacher Day. This holiday was founded by Eleanor Roosevelt in 1953. While most schools celebrate teacher appreciation week the first full week of May, the National Education Association has established Tuesday of the first full week of May as National Teacher Day. Teachers have historically been some of the most important, under-appreciated, and poorly compensated employees in our nation’s workforce. We should continue to work to change this and remember how critical educators are to the growth and development of our country. All of us at Minces PLLC hope that you take today to think about a teacher that was special to you and reach out to let them know just how much they impacted your life. Malala Yousafzai said it best: “Let us remember: one book, one pen, one child and one teacher can change the world.”
