Quote of the Week
You are in a position to make a positive impact on our students. You have the power to go above and beyond to bring your classroom lessons to life and to make a real difference in the lives of our students. The best teachers think outside of the box and outside of the norm. These teachers make classroom experiences exciting and memorable for the students. These teachers are all of you! This week, as we welcome our students back to school after vacation, continue to spend time creating a classroom full of lasting memories and amazing lessons. Teachers who THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX encourage their students to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX.
