Almost every night for the past two weeks, my son has had something special to share with us about a particular teacher. Sometimes it concerns an assignment or activity, other times it’s one small thing the teacher says. Each time my son shares his story, I realize that he is being inspired by this teacher.
We’re very lucky to have this teacher, but we haven’t always been so lucky. The quality of education we offer to our children should not be a game of luck.
About six months ago, I met Andrew Blumenfeld via email. While studying at Princeton, he made time to discuss my friend’s teacher issue. Though I was a stranger, he made time to answer my questions. He returned thoughtful and informative emails within hours, each and every time.
