Dear Lincoln Families,
This week is national teacher appreciation week. From my perspective being a teacher is the most important job in the world. I also believe that if you work in a school, but do not hold the formal title of teacher you still play a very important role in the development and education of students. I have seen our classified staff, nurses, coaches, campus safety team, counselors, paraprofessionals, custodians, psychologists and food service workers connect with our students to support them, teach them and advocate for them. This week, we honor all of them.
My favorite thing about Lincoln is our shared belief that it takes a village to raise our students. I have never worked at another school that has a staff that is more dedicated than the staff at Hive. Please take the time to let our teachers know how much they are valued. This has been the hardest year for educators and they deserve a standing ovation. An email, handwritten note, gift card, lunch, coffee, chocolate, potted plant are all wonderful ways to show your appreciation.
I would also like to wish all of the mothers and mother figures a very special Mother’s Day. I hope you get a day of pampering and relaxation for the hard work you do everyday.
