Statement:  “I touch the future. I teach.” In these six words Christa McAuliffe, the ill-fated teacher-astronaut, encapsulated the significance of what we do as educators. It is an awesome responsibility. Our daily teachings are like the ripples created when we drop a pebble into a pond. The ripples move away from us in ever increasing circles. How far our impact will reach? You will only know, if and when, one night a student calls you, 35 years later, to thank you!
