World Without Teachers

Teachers are Heroes!

Everyday we have around 630 students enter our school. You smile and greet them no matter what state they are in. You embrace them when they need to feel acceptance, you challenge them to reach their goals, you listen when they confide in you, you feel their pain when they share their struggles, you celebrate their growth, you give them advise when they are faced with friendship issues, and I can go on and on with all the things you do to serve our students. You are a hero, because you are given a very challenging task, and you press on with determination and passion. Thank you for being a hero for our students!
