Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Those teachers have the hardest job in the school district.

Those teachers teach, change diapers and haul squirmy children who don't stay little forever.

Those teachers have mountains of paperwork, IEP goals, and common core to tackle.

Those teachers are forced to test kids, some of whom don't read or speak.

Those teachers love mightily, as much as the families like my own.

Those teachers show us that success can be measured in the tiniest of ways.

Those teachers call us and cheer and encourage our little people to take steps, drink from water fountains, even use a fork.

Those teachers aren't in it for the money.

Those teachers show up every day and roll with the punches.

Those teachers have my heart.

Those teachers move mountains and teach the world that extra special needs don't mean you're lesser than or second best.

Those teachers do far more than a job.

Those teachers are leaving a mark on the world.

Those teachers are the ones who deserve the standing ovation.

Those teachers.
