HAPPY TUESDAY SPEAKIES:
Hoping you all had a pleasant and relaxing Monday evening and your day has started off on the right foot. I pay honor today to a group of people who hope their days start off right and that is teachers for it is “National Teacher’s Day.” Teaching can be a very rewarding and satisfying position if the respect is given and the teacher worthy of such honor. When I was growing up I was taught by nuns and one did not mess around or you felt the sting of the wooden ruler across the knuckles. I think along the years respect has been lost to some degree whether it is due to the personalities of both teachers and students, their attitudes of teaching and learning or just the time itself. Every day on the news there are stories of students threatening teachers or teachers sexually abusing students. All Joey Z can say is get back to the old days, make teaching and learning what it should be knowledge mixed with fun.
We observe the Empanada today which is a stuffed bread or pastry baked or fried consisting of meat, cheeses, veggies or other stuff. To me they are like an Italian calzone or a stromboli. Have a great day Guys and Dolls but be careful out there.
