Day 12: Wrote a "Thank You" Letter to a Former Teacher

The lasting impact of a teacher is profound. I have been in the classroom to see my wife teach and witness that impact first hand. You may say I am biased for this, but I know that my wife is one of the greatest teachers out there. For the past 4 years, she has had the unique opportunity to teach the same students from Kindergarten through 3rd grade, and I have been able to see these children develop both academically and socially. I know that 10 or 20 or 30 years from now they will remember my wife. The reason I know that is because to this day, I remember lessons, both educational and life, that were taught to me by Mr. Dennis Plecas. Mr. Plecas was always able to make school fun while still maintaining a focus on our education. I am sure I am not the only person from my elementary school who remembers his sayings or funny faces. I will always remember that Mr. Plecas was the first person to come up and talk to me when I returned to school after my grandfather passed away. So today, I am going to sit down and write a letter to Mr. Plecas so that he knows of the impact he has had on me. Maybe if you get a chance, write a letter to someone who has impacted your life. Maybe it was a teacher or a coach. I am sure they would definitely appreciate it.
