Week of May 2, 2016 - A Week

A Gratitude

Teacher appreciation week - a week that from my point of view, exemplifies how you should be treated each week.

Each day I'm in awe of what you do for the students of Yancey, and each other. Every person in this building believes in the betterment of these children through education. I know that you face real challenges each day. The effort that you put forth, the methods that you employ, and heart that you show is inspiring to all of your students and anyone who witnesses it.

You are making Yancey a special place - and you deserve all the gratitude you get!

Thanks for all you do!
