Message from the Superintendent: May 2017

What makes a good teacher…

What are the qualities needed to transform a classroom into a home and a school community into a family…

Teacher Appreciation Week is May first through fifth. We honor teachers and celebrate the lasting contribution they make to all our lives.

Thank you to all of our educators! You make a difference in the life of a child every day. If you are a parent, you know this first-hand. Just think of all the times your son or daughter has uttered the phrase, “But my teacher said…”

A teacher’s words carry weight. You educate, guide, and inspire.

Since teachers mean so much to us, I want us all to do something simple and meaningful for them.

Let’s make Teacher Appreciation Week and the entire month of May special for as many teachers as possible. Many students write thank you notes to show their appreciation. Since we all are or have been students, I’m asking each of you to tell a teacher about the personal impact they have made in your life. Whether it’s by email, snail mail, or in person, I guarantee your message will put a smile on their face.

Warm Regards,

Isaac G. Joseph
