Life is calling

Laurien Baart

The guy in the middle’s my dad. He’s been a teacher for forty three years. I made this drawing for today; the celebration of his retirement.

My dad inspires me a lot with his passion for education and his drive to always keep learning. He taught me to always keep trying no matter what, and that you’re never too old to learn something new. Teaching brought him joy and he always cares for people. I think that is what makes him a grand teacher!

I believe that education can change our world and that teachers can be the spark in someone’s life to lift them up and help them grow. Have you ever had a special teacher in your life that really made a difference?

I’d love to hear from you so please leave a comment below.

Have a nice day!
