Words cannot express how much I love Teacher Tuesday. I have never been a teacher, but one of my best friends is. Well, I should say that he is one of my best friends in the summer because during the school year, I really don't see him. He is so busy with teaching, and when he is not at school, he is usually just resting. It takes so much out of him. I also think about the future...of America and of the world...and I realize that our teachers play such an integral part in that future. Besides good parents, good teachers can paint our future.

It was a great pleasure to present Mr. Daniel Melendrez with the Teacher Tuesday Award this week. He was glowing with a light that made me sure he was a great choice!
