Strength! The qualities of strength include being strong both physically and mentally. A definition of strength may include having the ability to move with energy. As I was thinking about the word strength, I thought about the fact that some of the people I know who show the greatest strength are teachers. Beginning in 1984, the National Parent Teacher Association started promoting Teacher Appreciation during the first week of May. This year the theme for Teacher Appreciation Week is “Teachers are Everyday Real Heroes!
Teachers are indeed real heroes! Our teachers encourage children to excel. They have patience to educate our children. Teachers are master innovators; they use common every day experiences to give students a base of education that will help lead to success throughout their lives.
This week join me in celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week! Here are some things that the Parent Teacher Association recommends as you honor our teachers: Send a thank you card to a special teacher, help a teacher by volunteering in his or her classroom, and post positive comments on social media about a teacher who had an impact on your life.
Columbia teachers give of themselves both inside and outside of the classroom. Their dedication to their students doesn’t seem to have a limit. They use innovative plans to give students the best opportunity to excel. The teachers’ emphasis on technology integration helps to weave complex thinking skills into each area of the curriculum.
