Mia Bundren thought so much of her reading teacher, Anne Day, that she drew and colored a portrait of her.

"I hope you like the portrait of you. You always made me smile," the 8-year-old daughter of Stephanie and Josh wrote on the back of her drawing.

At the end of June, Day will conclude her 35-year teaching career at the top. She has been named the Teacher of the Year.

My son had Ms Day 5 years ago. She was incredible then and now! Enjoy your retirement!!! I remember that the kids did not have school before Christmas due to snow days and they had made stuff for their parents. Ms Day went and personally delivered each one to the child's house!!!

In my humble opinion only teaching children is a more noble way of life than being a good parent. So to read these wonderful accolades about Ms. Day is truly heartwarming.

Further, to Ms. Day I say thank-you for caring so much, as well as thank her for reminding us, a great teacher is priceless. So here's hoping she enjoys her retirement,as well as hoping she never stops touching the lives of children where ever retirement leads her.
