What Makes Teachers Great – A Teacher Appreciation Week Post

This is a blog post written by the principal of Southport Middle School this week. I found it to be an easy read and very honest and true for our staff of GREAT TEACHERS! Click on the link to read!

  • Great teachers care about kids first and foremost.
  • Great teachers are risk takers.
  • Great teachers have a “no blame attitude.”
  • Great teachers are team players.
  • Great teachers are challengers, but not resistors.
  • Great teachers have a purpose.

Thank you to all the great teachers out there! You make a difference everyday!

Do you recognize these traits in some of your colleagues? Tell them! Celebrate each other and what makes us great!
