Oct 5th is World Teachers’ Day – Kindness Is What It’s All About

Think back to your K-12 school experience.  Now, I want you to recall a specific example of a kindness given to you by a teacher in the building – something that resonated with you.  I bet you can think of something and someone immediately — and I bet that you remember that person’s name. Teachers have those interactions with students every single day.

Fiddler on the Roof

A teacher from my past that comes to mind was Ms. Bell — my Grade 10 English teacher. I had just moved from Toronto to Calgary and I didn’t know a soul.  As I am not typically the most outgoing of personalities I must have looked like a deer in headlights.  Ms. Bell took me aside one day and told me that I was to come to rehearsal next week for the school musical – Fiddler on the Roof.  She wanted me in the chorus.  She had no idea if could sing – heck, I barely even talked in class. 

And for your information … yes, I can sing.  In fact, I sing in many keys all at once.  I consider it a rare talent.
