Jim Gearhart Celebrates National Teacher Appreciation Day
No matter what field you are in, if you are successful at what you do, you more than likely have a teacher to thank for it.
Today is National Teacher Appreciation Day. National Teacher Appreciation day started back in 1985 and although it's hard to just take one day to thank all the amazing teachers in NJ and across the country, we did our best to show as much appreciation as we could in a 4-hour program.
It started out with traffic reporter Jill Myra mentioning her son's teacher, Mrs. Bruno and how appreciative she is for Mrs. Bruno teaching her son. Then Jim decided to open it up to the callers and let listeners call in and show their appreciation for their favorite teachers.
Here's a list of some of the amazing teachers that were mentioned on air below:
