Today I am grateful for teachers.
With my daughter finishing Grade 12 it got me thinking about all the wonderful teachers she has had over her 12 years of schooling.
I am grateful for all those teachers that have helped her negotiate her school life. I am grateful for all the things she has learnt. I am grateful for the help they have given her to be ready to enjoy and explore life going forward. I hope she finds many more teachers in the coming years to help her develop new passions that she will follow.
I have many teachers because I have never stopped learning. I am grateful for all those teachers.
I have had wonderful cycling coaches who I have learnt so much from. Marcel Bengston, Kirsty Broun, Adam Gill and Nicci Heath have all helped me to be a better and stronger cyclist.
I have a wonderful personal trainer Tom who I have worked with for about 10 years. I do weights with him and will always try and do some weight training so I keep osteoporosis at bay.
And then I have all those other wonderful incidental teachers that are my friends that I have learnt things from because I admire the way they live their lives.
I encourage you all to value and cherish those people in our lives that share their knowledge and allow all of us to keep on learning no matter what our age.
