Gratitude for education has several meanings in my life. First of all I am grateful that I have been able to obtain a good education. Education is also my livelihood. I am grateful every day to go to work and be around amazing teachers and children. There is something energizing about being around children in that setting. Having a child say hi as I walk through the halls, or bye as they ride off on the bus always brings a smile to my face. I love to visit the classrooms and see what the students are able to do. I love to see the energy and excitement teachers bring to their lessons each day. I am lucky to be in a field where I get to see such great things on a regular basis. I am so blessed!
