TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK
National Teacher Appreciation Week on the first Monday through Friday in May honoring those who have dedicated their lives to education.
The entire week focuses on those amazing and inspiring people who see the talent and skills in even the meekest of us. Teachers manage to zero in on the one ability that will help us focus and master a topic, or at least get through it. They turn Greek into…well…Greek! Chemistry is magical and algebra is something you might actually use. These are the reasons we appreciate our teachers.
Public and private school teachers provide students with the tools and resources they will build upon for the rest of their lives. Not only do they educate, but they also serve as mentors and guide our youth, too.
