Newsflash #17 – World Teachers Day

I’m breaking away from my normal habit of supplying a quote with a number when posting a newsflash.

It’s World Teacher Day today, and married to one, I owe some recognition to the wondrous humans around the world who accepted their calling as educators.  So to all them teachers all around the globe, spending time, moulding fragile minds, inspiring awesomeness, exhuming patience, transferring knowledge, issuing ambition, instilling self-worth…


We salute you, and to my wondrous wife, who’s the best teacher I know… I learn from you every day, my love.

I leave you with the wisdom of two people, with the first one I’ve never heard of and the second one I know, from being Angelina Jolie’s son.

In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the  rest of us would have to settle for something else.

I’ve been busy today, haven’t I? Have a great weekend!

  1. It’s school holidays here in Oz, so we missed it! Typical Aussies, slacking off on a special day 😉 I love that first quote. There are so many that denigrate teachers, so I take hold if the good ones! Happy Teachers Day to your wife!


I won't bite, I promise...
