As the final week of my undergraduate education begins, I am reflecting on my ENTIRE education. I originally planned on naming many of my teachers and professors for this post, but then I realized that EVERY SINGLE one of them had a lasting impact. I can still name every teacher I’ve ever had from Kindergarten up to right now. Every elective, every P.E. class, every high school period…every single teacher. My education and the schools I attended are among the most cherished things in my life. Hopefully you feel the same when you look back at your own education.
This one is for ALL MY TEACHERS.
“A parent gives life, but as a parent, gives no more. A murderer takes life, but his deed stops there. A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”
Henry Adams was the grandson of President John Quincy Adams and the great-grandson of President John Adams. At times rather controversial, he was a very bright man.
Although I am dedicating this post to all of my current and former teachers, I would like to give special thanks to a select few who believed in me more than I ever imagined at the time. Mrs. Peggy Buzanski, Fourth Grade at Marguerite Hahn Elementary; Mr. Steve Kraus, Eighth Grade Humanities/English/History at Creekside Middle School (now Lawrence E. Jones Middle School); and Mr. Mike Truesdell, President of Cardinal Newman High School. Thank you so very much for positively affecting me more than you will ever know.
