DID you ever wonder where the hunger to learn comes from? And why that hunger has never been destroyed—or satisfied? In fact, today it is only growing. Be it a young girl  in Afghanistan who knows she belongs in school and not married off at 13, or a 90-year-old African grandmother enrolled in grade school with her great-grandchildren, or refugee children having lost everything except a desire to learn —the yearning to learn is the story that can’t be told too many times. Neither can the role of teachers ever be overestimated. To quote Rita Pierson, “Every child deserves a teacher who insists that they become the best that they can be.” — Mrs.Chips
