Teacher Appreciation Week

May 2, 2016

NTD-2013-FB-profile-3.jpgI hope you are all as fortunate as I am, and that you are able to look back on your years in school and remember a teacher or teachers who made a difference in your life. If you can do that…..then let them know. During national teacher appreciation week, send a teacher a note, an email, or Facebook message and let them know that they are important to who you are today. Good teachers are invested in the success of their students. And while we say we “touch the future” we often are not quite sure of that. Take time this week to let them know. Thank a teacher!

Presidential Proclamation — National Teacher Appreciation Day and National Teacher Appreciation Week, 2016

Just as we know a student’s circumstances do not dictate his or her potential, we know that having an effective teacher is the most important in-school factor for student success……

Our future is written in schools across our country. It is likely that the first person who will go to Mars is in a classroom today. Our students are our future teachers, scientists, politicians, public servants, and parents — a generation that will steer the course we will take as a people and make possible things we have not even imagined yet. We look to the women and men standing in front of classrooms in all corners of our country — from cities to reservations to rural towns — to vest America’s daughters and sons with the hard skills they will need to put their dreams within reach and to inspire them to dream even bigger. On National Teacher Appreciation Day and during National Teacher Appreciation Week, let us ensure our educators know how much we value their service in the classroom, how much we appreciate all they do for our students and families, and how thankful we are for their contributions to our national progress.
