In light of Father’s Day being right around the corner, this post is dedicated to all the hard working fathers in the education profession—because fathers are teachers, too!
When you hear the word ‘teacher’ what do you first imagine? Adjectives like caring, nurturing, selfless, and patient may come to mind, and for good reason! Teachers are all those wonderful things and more! But when you hear the word ‘teacher’ what do you see? Do you imagine someone short or tall? Someone suited up or dressed casually? Do you see a male or a female?
From primary to high school, men only make up 23% of teachers in the US. With this in mind, we must never overlook the contributions male teachers have made to the world through the power of knowledge!
Teachers put forth an incredible amount of time and effort to educate the world, many of who leave the classroom to take care of children of their own. Thus, in the spirit of Father’s Day, Teacher Peach is showcasing a few of our ‘Father’s Day Favorites’ that help balance the lives of teacher-parents.
