It’s time to send our kids back to school and this is definitely a bittersweet moment for many parents. While some parents find it to be a relief, there are others who find it sad. This is also a time to remember that teachers are the true heroes of our society and that they deserve all the same recognition that is typically given to athletes and rock stars.
