I have several friends who are teachers. They dread this time of year. Students think they are the only ones who don't want to go back to school, but they are wrong! Teachers have to start brand new lesson plans, knowing full well that the two weeks off probably means no one remembers anything about what they were learning in December.
My teacher friends would much rather be reading paperback novels - not breaking down the Scarlet Letter for the umpteenth time with a group of rowdy teenagers that probably just rented the Demi Moore version on Netflix. (side note: that movie is nothing like the Hawthorne book!)
Perhaps instead of giving Christmas presents to teachers at the end of the year, we should give them "Thank you for coming back, my kids were driving me crazy at home" gifts in January...
ARTIST OF THE DAY
An only child of parents who immigrated to Australia from Chile, Charmaine was raised in Sydney, Australia. With music at the core of their family, her parents committed their lives to music ministry and traveled the world as part of a vocal group; Charmaine was born on tour in Los Angeles and raised out of a suitcase. At 16, her musical gift was discovered and she moved to the US and toured with notable artists such as Rebecca St.James, Jeremy Camp, Newsboys and more.
A former backup singer for Rebecca St. James in years past, she released one solo album eight years ago under the title All About Jesus on Elevate Records. Most folks don't remember this worship outing. Love Reality is almost a second debut.
