The profession that creates all other professions

It’s national Teacher Appreciation Week, so let’s talk about the men and women who help to nurture our kids.

Teachers can change lives … and they do, every day.

Bringing energy and excitement to the classroom has everything to do with how well our kids learn.

It takes a lot of work … a lot of planning and creativity, especially in inclusion classrooms.

Too many parents take teachers for granted. They send their kids to school and expect the world … when in fact the world starts at home.

Got a kid in school? Do you volunteer with the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO)? You should. It sends a strong message to your kids about the value you place on education … and community.

If there is one job that seems to be taken for granted, it is the job of a teacher.

They teach because they love the subject or content they chose and they love working with students. The best teachers work to make an impact on students’ lives … to inspire them.

Sadly, many kids don’t see it that way … nor do enough parents. Have you talked to your kids’ teacher lately? Do you really know how well (or not) your kid is learning?

Take time to meet your children’s teachers. Be a part of their education throughout their school days and beyond.

Below are some inspirational quotes we found to further get our message across that teachers inspire, and they’re impact on our children goes well into the future.
