77. Write a teacher a thank you note

My Story

Updated February 7, 2010

Really, it’s shameful that I haven’t done this yet. We all should, especially if there was a teacher who made a big difference in our lives.

Is there any job more thankless than being a teacher? Underpaid, overworked, and working with kids who don’t want to read or do math or complete their homework every single day. I can only imagine.

Not that the job isn’t without the rewards – and what could be more rewarding than a heartfelt letter from a former student who remembers you 10 or 20 years later and thanks you for the lasting impression you left on their lives?
