Ok kids, it’s that time again. Time for another episode of Kanata’s Castle! Becca and Devon are back for a special episode in honor of Teacher’s Appreciation Month and an exploration of Life Lessons from the galaxy far, far away. So, sit back and enjoy Star Wars, “Teach me you did.”
What has Star Wars taught me? That’s a loaded question. Perhaps, the better question is: what hasn’t Star Wars taught me?
Teacher’s Appreciation Month is an invitation for everyone to tell a story about a teacher or mentor in their lives who helped the Force awaken within them. We encourage everyone to participate in whatever way you wish. Have you learned something from someone that has impacted your life? Take some time this week to share your gratitude and show your appreciation for their inspiration. #TeachMeYouDid
