Who’s your hero? #NationalSuperheroDay

Date

Today is #NationalSuperheroDay
Now, I’m not sure who made that up, but let’s go with it. Who is your favorite superhero?  You could take the easy route and think about Superman, Wonder Woman, The Incredibles—there are tons to choose from. But I want to know Who your REAL superhero is!

I am grateful that I have an abundance of superheroes in my life. It’s hard for me to pick which one to write about. I think today I’ll tell you about my fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Constance C. Pruitt. I can’t pinpoint exactly what it was, but she let me know that I could do anything I put my mind to. She gave me space to be me. Even when I didn’t know exactly who I was. Our early years are critical time and Mrs. Pruitt helped give me the confidence to start to know who I was, even then.

We’re friends on Facebook now and I’m amazed how many of my classmates hold her in the same high esteem. I think she made each one of us feel special. So, to MY superhero, Mrs. Constance C. Pruitt – thank you for sharing your super powers with me AND helping me find my own.
