Congratulations to all my teacher friends who are getting to the end of the year.  I have such respect for teachers - and not just because they perform such an important role in society.  It's because they always have to be on the ball.

Most of us, if we are having a rough day and still have to go into work, can at least hide in our office or cubicle.  You can't hide if you're a teacher.  Who wants to break up with their boyfriend and then spend six hours in front of 100 12-year-olds, pretending to care about Farewell to Manzanar.  I'd rather have a job where I can duck behind my computer if I need time to myself.

So, to teachers everywhere:  Thanks for what you do.
