On last week, Jeanne Garbarino wrote about the important role of inspired teachers and shared how much a letter of simple thanks can mean to a teacher who’s giving his all, day in and day out, in a truly crucial and incredibly difficult job.  Reading her words played a big part in inspiring me to ask for these tributes.

In New York City, the department of education has a Thank a Teacher website, making it easy for parents and kids to hop online and express gratitude for these people who enrich our lives in such a profound way.  Check it out if you’re in New York.  If not, send me an email or send your teacher an email or maybe just write a note on a napkin, but let her know the positive impact she’s having.
