Teaching is a sacrificial kind of job. Nobody does it for the money. But just because they’re not motivated by dollars and cents doesn’t mean teachers don’t appreciate a pat on the back or a kind word. In fact, it’s often the intangibles that keep them going.

Morning coffee drinkers would rather wait and drink the junk coffee at work than go way out of their way to stop for a good cup.

These days it’s merely dumped into our waiting hand.
