My wife is a teacher…A very dedicated, good teacher. I see her work hard many hours OUTSIDE her classroom. I see her genuine concern for her students. I see the thanks and positive feedback she receives from those whose lives she’s changed for the better.

But, she is also a dedicated wife and mother. She shouldn’t have to compromise her family for her job.

I notice when she gets emails from parents while she’s at home, late at night, on the weekends, during holidays.

Some of these emails are asking what I feel is too much of her.

“What was the assignment for tonight?”

“Please let email me when my child is misbehaving.”

“Why did you ask this or that on the test?”

What if she had to do this for every child?

I ask any parent today, did your parents have this level of access to your teachers? No!

Please respect the good teachers in your child’s life. Hold your child accountable so he or she can grow and mature.

Trust your teacher’s good judgment and be understanding when he or she makes mistakes, as we all do.

This will help them be a better teacher for your child, and help them enjoy their lives…beyond the classroom.

Proverbs 22:6 (KJV)

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.



God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
