Throughout our lives, there are those few special people who touch us in a way that sets them apart from all the others.
For me, it was Mr. Eberhardt, Doc Spooner and Col. Matheson.
These three helped shape my way of thinking, gave me insight on my life and the world around me and guided me toward adulthood.
I will always remember them as life mentors. All were teachers.
In the movie “Inherit the Wind,” Gene Kelly’s character is asked why he is working so hard to defend the schoolteacher indicted in the Monkey Trial. Kelly responds: “Because I know that the sunrise is an optical illusion.”
Then he flashes that million-dollar smile and says, “My teacher taught me that!”
We pay for what we value and sadly, today’s society does not value teachers.
Read Money Magazine’s “Top 50 Jobs in America,” CNN’s “35 Best Jobs in America,” Forbes “Best 40 Jobs,” College Recruiter’s “Best 50 Jobs in America.” Go ahead, pick any list and if it has the word “best” in it, it will not include the word “teacher.”
