My wife is a real life superhero. She teaches six sections and three preps — two are tested subjects. And then she puts on her cape and parents a three-year-old. A three-year-old who can flip a switch to tantrum-mode because of the wrong look, word, smell, or thought. A three-year-old who is in a phase where everything except breathing is up for negotiation. Routine is a mirage in our home. But somehow she creates a sense of routine for her students, along with engaging lessons, and does so with grace, humor, constructive feedback, and really good instruction.

It’s a super-human balancing act. One that leaves her — and me — sometimes feeling like the work we want to do so well is just beyond our grasp. But the pursuit is worthy. This week Tch appreciates all teachers, but especially the superhero teacher-moms. The ones who make magic happen at home and in the classroom. We've celebrated a lot this week, and we have even more ways to keep you growing. And if some days it all feels like too much, just do what I do and read the letter Sarah Brown Wessling wrote to her children about the balancing act she performs. It's not easy. And that's why we appreciate and celebrate you, teacher-moms!
