LizzLoves…Teachers! September 10, 2010

I just got back from a wonderful beach getaway with my family at the Jersey shore. One afternoon, while we were waiting for pizza in a local spot, two young women excitedly approached my parents because they recognized them as their former teachers.

One girl, smiled really big and said to my mom, “You might not remember me, but I’ll never forget your Social Studies class. I’m studying to become a teacher now and it’s all because of you!”

My mom nearly cried because she was so touched. Both of my parents, now retired, taught for more than 40 years combined. I may be biased, but I can attest to them being amazing educators and leaders. I know this because students are constantly running up to them to hug and thank them.

So, in this back-to-school season, this is my little homage to teachers. The teaching profession is the most underpaid, underappreciated out there. They nurture, shape and elevate our youth. They deserve to be paid more than CEOs!

Thank you to all the teachers out there!

    Teachers, social workers.. all the folks that are trusted to build our future leaders are underpaid. I am definitely for equalizing salaries a bit more!

    Ms. Nunez,

    This is my first exposure and contribution to a blog, thanks to Ms. Kandy Johnson.

    This is a wonderful site/blog and commendable mission toward providing exposure to opportunit for positive change in society.

    I have listen to your music and enjoyed every aspect of it. I am an enthusiastic listener of universal music delivered with with a positve message.

    Regarding salaries, I have long been a proponent of salaries paid on the basis of value to society along with other components of job descriptions as subsets.

    This would allow teachers to be the highest paid in our society since, without question from any sane & intelligent member of our species, teachers have the greatest impact.

    The problem continues to be that at least half of society lacks the intelligence to change this.

    I am doing my part to contribute through http://www.brightblacklight.com

    Thank you for all you do,
    Larry Bell
