Mr. Harnell teaches and owns Proctor Builders Hardware Store. He has an electronic sign outside of his store welcoming you to Proctor, MN the home of "xyz." This week out of the blue he featured my name on the sign. I haven't lived in Proctor for ten years! It was surprising and sweet. I was lucky to have many teachers that inspired me in the classroom, found time to coach me, and mentored me outside of school. I am thankful for everyone of them.
Thank you to all the inspirational, dedicated, and tired educators out there making a difference everyday. I am sending you warm, caffeinated thoughts today. Enjoy the deals below!
