I really enjoy watching Ellen. In addition to an easygoing attitude, her humor, everything she stands for, AND providing the voice of one of my favorite Pixar characters Dory, she also finds such compelling stories that are captivating and inspirational at the same time. Take this recent interview with Sara Ferguson, for instance. With the Chester Upland School district’s budget cuts, Sara and many other teachers resolved to continue working without pay as long as they are “individually able” so that they can continue to educate the children from the low-income families in their community. How is that for dedication to your profession?
Teaching is already a thankless job to begin with, and in public schools, many are underpaid even when they play a critical role in a child’s growth, learning, and future. Our future. Sara Ferguson and her fellow teachers deserve the highest praise.
