For all my Home School momma friends out there...

**this is from Spunky Homeschool ~ for Teacher Appreciation Week.  Keep up the fantastic work, ladies!  It's hard, sometimes really, REALLY hard.....but totally worth it!!

What is a Teacher?

A teacher is someone who can....

....Give a hug without getting arrested.
....Bandage a knee without calling the school nurse.
....Change a light bulb without called the custodian.
....Make the children wash the bathrooms without union approval.
....Have a relationship with the principal without getting fired.
....Teach a child's mind while capturing their heart.
....Teach what they believe in and believe in what they teach.
....Meet the child's needs and not worry about meeting state guidelines.
....Commit to a lifetime of work without pay but receive rewards that last a lifetime.
....Pray in class, out loud, with the children and the ACLU can't say a word.

There is only one that can fill that job description...

A teacher is a mom.

"Hear my son, your father's instruction, and do not forsake your mother's teaching."
Proverbs 1:8

p.s.  I especially like the part about the principal.....hehehe~

A word to the wise: Do NOT get started reading SpunkyHomeSchool late at night. You just get sucked in, reading all sorts of interesting facts & opinions & comments - then you get mad, then you smile, then you're back to mad again, then you laugh......it's ridiculous!!!

Seriously though, take a minute when you can (NOT late at night) and read some of her thoughts. Interesting~
