I was told something tonight at our FFA awards banquet that really touched me. A parent came up to me and introduced herself and told me, "You've pushed my son this year, hard." I wasn't sure what to say until she finished. "Thank you. He wouldn't be going to college if it wasn't for you," with tears in her eyes.

Now mind you, not everyone is meant to go to college, or trade school or tech school, as is the case with this young man, but its the fact that he is making strides in the right direction to better himself.

It's not for the money, or the summer or the breaks that made me choose this profession. It was the hope that one day I would make a positive impact on the life of a student, and many more to come. THIS IS WHY I AM A TEACHER!

The best teacher I had in hi-school was my Vo-Ag FFA. That was almost 50 yrs ago. I went to his funeral last year a great man.
