Teacher working with a small group of elementary students.

From preschool to college level, teachers are essential

Teacher Appreciation Day is May 2nd every year. Guess what! Today IS that day! Then, May 7-13, 2023, is Teacher Appreciation Week. It may not seem like much, but during this time, we can make sure that we thank the teachers that help shape our children into adults. From preschool to college, public or private, and homeschool, those who teach are awesome folks.

We all have our favorite teachers and our not-so-favorite ones. Teachers are special people who are basically saints in disguise. Parents won’t always see eye to eye with those who care for the kids during the day, and the students definitely won’t. However, one thing we can all agree on is – Teachers need to get more recognition.

Teachers can make a huge difference in a child’s life

I, for one, am grateful for the teachers that took the time to work with me. Growing up with ADHD made learning challenging, and not all my teachers would take the time to ensure I understood the educational content that was their chosen area of expertise. However, there are a handful of those adults that truly made a difference during my formative years.

In fourth grade, there was Mr. Cicil. Then, in high school, Mrs. Fuller, my sophomore-year English teacher, and Dr. Margaret Paprocki, my freshman Algebra 1 Part 1 teacher. I cannot recall my Algebra 1 teacher’s name, but he was a graduate of VMI, and he did everything he could to help me understand Algebra. During my junior year, several teachers had a positive impact on me. Mrs. Gerry, who taught Virginia History, Mrs. Latta, who taught English; and my Biology & Spanish teacher (but his name eludes me). And Mrs. Glassman, my Art teacher. She was also my neighbor.

Life outside the classroom

Teachers enjoy life outside of the classroom, much like the rest of us. Whether it’s time at the beach or time spent in the mountains, being outdoors can be quite rejuvenating. Those who opt to homeschool may enjoy RV living or full-time boating with their family. Either way, if a teacher has an RV, travel trailer, or boat – they should check under their mattress.

Condensation does not discriminate between those camping recreationally and those who spend most of their time in their RV or boat. That mattress is a sleep investment. RWM wants to make sure each teacher gets a good night’s rest that is free of bunk funk. Den-Dry Condensation Control helps to ensure mold and mildew don’t creep into the mattress by lifting it up from the bedding platform. Speaking from experience, it’s not fun when one is plagued with migraines incessantly from an allergy to mold and/or mildew.
