Virtually everyone can recall a special teacher, coach, or mentor who opened his or her eyes to a new outlook on life. Teachers guide us to read, write, imagine, explore, and understand; they teach us to count, and they teach us what counts in life. Teachers touch millions of young lives every day with their dedication, passion, and generosity. A Cup of Comfort for Teachers offers parents, students, and anyone with a treasured mentor a way to repay our devoted educators. A Cup of Comfort for Teachers is the ideal reward for teachers, featuring such remarkable stories as: When a classroom computer goes missing, a disheartened inner-city teacher gets an unexpected gift—and boost—from her students; A sign language interpreter and music tutor helps a determined deaf woman pass a college piano course and play her first song—solo!; A dedicated and successful teacher meets her greatest challenge: Her own son refuses to learn to read; Ordinary "show and tell" unexpectedly teaches a new kindergarten teacher a valuable lesson about education; A teacher coaxes an illiterate thirteen-year-old street urchin in Africa into an adult-education classroom, opening the door to a better future. Every teacher needs a lift from time to time and a token of recognition for the powerful positive influence they have on their students. A Cup of Comfort for Teachers is the perfect gift for these dedicated professionals.
