On Tuesday, we had the formal recognition of Teacher Appreciation Day. First, many thanks to the Parents Association at Craig School (PACS) for the wonderful gifts to our teachers. I have heard from many of them how appreciative they are of the gift. As I have looked at the targeted teaching, activities, and care of our students that our teachers exhibit every day.
What I also know is how much all of us are missing our students. For me, I miss the carpool line. I miss the conversations that develop. For example, at this time of year, I miss the positive comments from our parents of students leaving us at the end of the year. I also miss simply saying hello to all.
This week is important to all of us. We need to remember all the things that teachers have given to each one of us. Please celebrate with me the gift of education that we have all received.
