The role that educators play in our lives is immeasurable. It is from them that we learn not only the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic, but also the concepts of discipline, ethics, and play. They teach us about compassion, sharing, and ambition, and what is takes to reach our goals offering guidance along the way.
Filled with inspiring, true stories, For the Love of Teachers is a tribute to those whose dedication to education reigns supreme, whether simply for the summer vacations or the shortened workday. May these stories inspire a new generation of teachers to pass on the lessons they have learned, or may they reignite the passion of the tenured few.
Some stories are warm, humorous, and heartfelt, while others speak of the sacrifices and challenges faced by educators and students alike. Although the path can be difficult and unexpected at times, many will agree that the true reward for teaching lies in the aha moment—that specific point in time when everything becomes clear and understood. For the Love of Teachers is the ideal way to express the admiration and appreciation we share for getting us there.
