From the Principal - Teacher Appreciation Week - May 3 - 7
Don't Forget to Thank a Teacher!
Teachers shape our lives!
- Everyone can think of at least one teacher who pushed us to be our best selves, inspired us, or showed us a new way of thinking. Where would we be without them?
They work really hard!
- No one works harder than teachers. One study indicates that the average workweek for teachers is 53 hours! They spend a great amount of time creating lesson plans, grading material, and coming up with fun extras to make classroom time more engaging.
They are heroes!
- They provide comfort, familiarity and support to the well-being of the whole of each student - academically, physically and emotionally.
Teachers, you are valued and we thank you!
