Happy Friday everyone! Today may be the last day of Teacher Appreciation Week, but I hope we all remember to thank a teacher every day. They are the ones at the front lines supporting, inspiring and preparing our future. The final guest blogger in this series, Carrie Both, a primary teacher, mentor and decorated practicioner, shares one more story about the teacher who inspired her... and reminds us to always continue challenging ourselves, to keep climbing higher, even when we think we've reached the summit.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Last year I asked fellow educators to recognize colleagues in their schools who are doing great work. This year, I asked friends to think back to when they were sitting in their students' seats - and remember the teachers who inspired them! In this series, we will share stories from our past and honor the educators who positively influenced us. I'll kick it off by telling you about a teacher who truly changed my life and inspired me in so many ways...

I want to send a wish out to our teachers on this Teacher Appreciation Day. Please also appreciate yourselves. Teachers are so good at pumping up their students, their school and even each other. However, they aren't always the best at giving themselves props. So teachers, moving forward: don't say "I'm just a teacher". Don't feed into this negativity. Don't downplay your hard work, sweat, tears and heart. Don't be humble. Take today to brag.
