You, dear teachers, are our most influential people

Viola Davis’ confident beauty emboldens the cover of this month’s Time, introducing the magazine’s feature of “The 100 Most Influential People.”

While the people on the pages deserve accolades, I would like to nominate you, dear teachers, as the most influential people.

Grade 3: For singing songs about our country and empowering us to embrace our heritage.

Grade 4: For reading aloud from Gordon Korman and Roald Dahl.

Grade 5: For eloquently teaching about the birds and the bees.

Grade 6: For letting girls take pencil cases to the bathroom.

Grade 7: For diffusing drama and handling our hormones.
