Teachers are different in so many ways, and that they choose to follow the calling they feel to teach children? I've always admired that about them. But here's the thing: you can only admire someone for so long before you start feeling insecure about all the things they are better at than you. Generations of kids have been made better by teachers and they continue on, doing what they do with very little pay and perhaps very little thanks. If I ever thought motherhood was thankless, times it by 20-30 kids and parents a year, every year for three decades. Suddenly my gig keeping two kids alive for 18 years doesn't seem so bad. In honor of World Teacher's Day this Saturday and with all the appreciation I have for teachers, I thought I'd share a few of the ways their greatness leaves me feeling inadequate as a human being. -By Casey Mullins
