These past few days we have been celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week here at George â€” but there is no gesture we can make that properly acknowledges the magnitude of appreciation and recognition we owe those who work with our students on a daily basis.
Teachers are instructors, leaders, mentors, confidants, champions, counselors, cheerleaders, role models â€” the list is infinite. Every day as I walk through this school I am inspired to see teachers going above and beyond to provide the support and care that our students need and deserve.
This work is not always easy. There are tough days and challenges that can seem insurmountable â€” but I am amazed to see how our teachers are invigorated by those challenges, finding new and innovative solutions to help our students.
I am grateful every day for what these teachers do for our students and this week of appreciation is an important reminder to not take their work and dedication for granted.
Thank you, Teachers.
