Many of us have heard the quotation that teachers make all professions possible, or something to that effect.  The truth is, teachers are some of the most influential people in the life of any person. When I think back to my most memorable teachers, I think of those who were humble, yet confident….knowledgeable, yet not all knowing…..caring of all students, even those hard to like….focused on equity….and had a sense of humor.  I can think of Mr. Stamp, Mrs. Ditewig, Mr. Walworth, and many others. My reasons for entering our profession were largely because of the inspiration from these teachers, and the love I developed for my content area. For many of the teachers here in Port Townsend, I can guess many of the same reasons sparked their interest.   As more time and commitment is put into the preparation and continued dedication to be a good teacher, the more devoted teachers become.  As we set upon our annual Teacher Appreciation Week (May 7-11), please take some time to thank a teacher. Maybe reach back into your past to thank that teacher you think of from time to time.  Or, perhaps you have a colleague or friend who mentions how impactful a current teacher has been for them or their child. Let me say, “THANK YOU!” to all the wonderful teachers here in Port Townsend who make a difference each and every day.  You are the best!
