Day 121: Nominated My Wife For Teacher of the Month
As I have said on countless occasions, I am so proud and in awe of the job that my wife does on a day in and day out basis as a teacher at Erie Charter School. I see the hours that she pours in after work and on the weekends to ensure that her students receive the best education possible. She is always in search of new methods and ways to connect with the children to make sure that they don't become statistics of an inner city education system. I have gone to her classroom and seen first hand the impact that she has on these kids, and the respect and admiration that they have for her. She provides such a structured and dynamic environment, that schoolwork and learning become second nature to her students. In addition to her continuous effort, she works at an institution that is also committed to churning out students that aren't just prepared for high school, but for college and beyond. Although I have done different things to show her just how much I respect the job that she does, I always felt that there was a way that I could do more. So today, for my random act of kindness, I have nominated my wife for WGN's Teacher of the Month contest. Even if she doesn't get selected, I know in my heart that she is the Teacher of the Month every month of the year.
