True Story: Sherpa Mom worked in my elementary school for 30 years. Do you know what it's like to be 10 and your principal is knocking on your door? (Well, maybe YOU do, Mr- Authority- doesn't- scare- me.) Actually, it makes you realize at an early age that teachers are people, just like everyone else, and they have lives, too. I'm related to (and married to 1) many teachers, and have a great respect for their field. Hey, if you're miserable keeping 1 student home, how rough is 25-30 kids in one spot?
It was a real pleasure getting to know Scott Hopkins. He may have taught in a different era, but he used the opportunity to really connect with his students. Not always easy in this pandemic-plagued isolated world, nowadays. But think about it-aren't the teachers that you connected with the most memorable? Thanks so much , Scott, for reminding us why folks in this field should be held in high regard.
