Today is World Teachers’ Day, and I want to celebrate the best teacher I’ve ever had—my mom.
Mom has been a teacher since 1963—before she and Daddy were married in 1965—so countless students have called her “Mrs. Daquila” over the years. In those years she has taught students from four to 80 years of age (because she ran the GED program in our hometown of Willoughby for a time).
Mom just loves teaching. And her students and their parents really love her back. She has always received high praise and thanks from parents, and when she sees past students years later, they always tell her how much her classes meant to them.
I feel so fortunate to have such a loving first teacher in my life. Thank you, Mom. I love you.
So, have you thought about doing a layout about a favorite teacher of yours?
