Recently, I heard a captivating story about a teacher who could not read. John Corcoran went through life without being able to read. Surprisingly, he graduated high school and college while he was functionally illiterate. He even taught high school social studies for 17 years and was a successful teacher. This is his story.

Gratitude has empowered me to teach more effectively, appreciate my individual students, grow in my profession, and enjoy life. I am able to model one of the most important lessons in life, having a positive attitude, especially about the aspects of life that challenge me. In fact, last year I was voted Teacher of the year at my school, a direct result of practicing gratitude in my life and in my classroom.
