Words of Wisdom

Any of you ever thought about becoming a teacher? Why do you think people become teachers? Is it to get rich? . . . or famous? Probably not. Most people make the decision to teach because they care about the education of young people and they enjoy watching students learn and grow.
Last week, we celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week. It was an opportunity for people in the community, parents, and students to show their appreciation to teachers. No matter the time of year it is important to take some time and let your teachers know how much you appreciate the work they do for you every day.
With something to think about, make it a great day. The choice is yours.
