Dierks recently joined Kelly Ford in the Morning as he praised teachers for their endless hard work and patience as they make what he deems the “hardest job there is” look easy.
“I have so much respect for teachers and what they do,” Dierks shared. “Sometimes I think we got it turned around backwards. I’m getting paid what I get paid to go play a show and teachers are getting paid what they do [and] they have the hardest job there is, which is dealing with a bunch of kids.”
You can say that again!

Bentley went on to share his experience homeschooling during the pandemic throughout 2020 and according to him, he didn’t get a passing grade.
“I remember last year everything went down… we gave it [homeschooling] a try and first thing, we crushed it — my wife and I were like, high-fiving each other,” he said. “We were like, ‘this is so easy,’ the two of us managing three kids, we were just like getting it done.”
He continued, “The next day it was the complete opposite. I mean, screaming, crying — and that was just us,” he laughed. “I was like, ‘this is brutal, this is awful.’ No one is more thankful for teachers than parents last year, and hopefully we haven’t forgotten that lesson.”
BRB… going to thank a teacher, and you should too!
