Monday AM Notes, May 6

Hello Fine People,
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! You have lots of love coming your way this week–embrace it and know that you deserve every ounce of it! A quote to kick off the week of appreciation:

I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.
~John Steinbeck
