Just a bit of a tribute to teachers for this week's Illustration Friday topic: "Juggle:. Teachers truly do quite a juggling act to hold a classroom together, plan lessons, create bulletin boards, grade papers, resolve conflicts, and oh yeah, teach. Thanks to all you brave souls who endeavor to do this often thankless job for very little pay - we appreciate you!
See a similar teacher tribute I did in 2005 for IF- Heroes
