Teachers have one of the most important jobs in the world – they’re raising the next generation of leaders. But they’re underpaid, overworked, and unrecognized. In this funny video skit, imagine what it would be like if we gave teachers the same kind of attention that we give to professional sports athletes:
This skit shows different scenarios in which teachers are treated as if they were athletes. They get cheered for when they enter the classroom and after a lesson. Students are eager to get their autographs and have trading cards. Office supply companies sponsor them by sending them free stuff. All these scenes are a little silly, but if that’s the way we treat athletes, is it really all that weird to think we should treat teachers the same way?
If you’re a teacher, thank you for all you do. You are appreciated. If you know a teacher, why don’t you take some time to thank them and share this story with them?
