Across the country, bells are ringing. School bells, that is.
So, I'm celebrating a wicked awesome teacher this week! John wrote to me and nominated his wife Tonia. Tonia has always worked in low income schools in the districts she’s worked in (they live in NY), and she has had kids go to Ivy league schools because she believed in and supported them, even after they left her class.
Way to go Tonia! Cheers to you and your hard work!
And there are more teachers I want to celebrate today. Many members of my family are teachers, including:
and Mom and Dad (Al and Laurie Mannino).
Good luck and happy new year to all of the hard working teachers out there!!
I write about power dynamics in relationships, the empowerment of women, and the ethical and moral dilemmas love can create in our lives. This is a space where I meditate on those themes and share them with the word. Who knows, my next novel may start right here...
