"Today is the start of Teacher Appreciation Week.Say thank you to a teacher you admire. Say thank you to a teacher who changed your life.Say thank you to America’s teachers." Comment by Bob Shepherd at this site: "And here’s the thing: it was never this or that, in particular, that they taught, though often, those things were quite memorable. It was always their personalities and passions–their particular ways of grappling with a subject. They were always, always, first and foremost, MOSTLY, models of what an engaged, intrinsically motivated learner looks like. We got the windfall of their passions, and we wanted to be like them.You won’t find THAT in a piece of depersonalized education software."
