Welcome to a post that is dedicated to you… the teacher. Please enjoy the read and please remember to share it with others. – Mike (21centuryedtech)
Probably if you are visiting this site, there is a strong chance you are a teacher. It really doesn’t matter if you are in the central office, a school principal, support staff, or in the classroom. It is important to note that every one of these individuals are members of the teaching profession. All of us have learned from teachers as part of our formal schooling, worked side by side with teachers each day, and have been supported by teachers in our own schools and across the world.
As you may be aware, this is a very special week for educators. It is a week that, together, we celebrate and show appreciation for those in the teaching profession. The importance of this very special event is best described in the quote, “Teacher appreciation makes the world of education go around.” (Helen Peters). It is this world of education that awakens true discovery and promotes learning that lasts a lifetime. Continuous education is a very special gift that we all hold and one that supports the enlightened society in which we live.
As educators, we must take this opportunity to show our sincere appreciation to those teachers who make the world of education go around for each of us. Perhaps it is a teacher from our past, a teacher who took a moment and mentored us as we entered the profession, or a teacher today who continues to support our continued learning. Take a moment and celebrate this special week by sending that special message of appreciation to a teacher who has been part of your life. In this wonderfully connected world it really is just an email, conversation, phone call, or snail mail away!
I wish to express my sincere appreciation to all the educators who awaken those special moments of discovery in the daily lives of others as well as in my own. Thank you to those teachers who have given so much of their time, energy, and passion to ensure success in both their students and colleagues. It is also important to remember those preparing for the education profession along with those who have given service in the past.
Make sure you take a moment to show your appreciation to that special teacher. As we all express our appreciation, we will find that our individual, yet collective, efforts last much longer than a week… as they should. It really is time to integrate teacher appreciation as part of our ongoing professional culture. After all, “Teacher appreciation makes the world of education go around.”
