In addition to it being International Clitoris Awareness Week, it’s also Teacher Appreciation Week! I really had no idea that May was chock-full of this many holidays the first week in. Anyway, the school year is coming to an end pretty soon. Some of you might already be done! Before you leave, say thank you to your teachers because they really deserve it.
Teachers don’t just teach you lessons in class, but they teach you lessons in life as well. I learned so many valuable things from my teachers that weren’t related to the quadratic formula or evolution. Take some time to appreciate them!
