During summer months I find myself seeking parents that are spending time with their children rather than sitting them in front of a tablet, computer, or TV to occupy their time while school is out.
Now that school is back in full swing, so many educators came to my mind - especially since I work in a public school. I thought about this teacher, and that teacher, and oh, what about her, or what about him? So many wonderful educators came to mind that I simply could not select only one to honor.
While I know first-hand how dedicated these teachers are, I took time last week to really watch them at work. These fabulous people have dedicated their lives to teach children reading, writing, science, and arithmetic, art, music, and computer skills, and so much more! Additionally they are involved in teaching social skills such as respecting their friends, being quiet in class rooms and hallways, walking in straight lines, playing harmoniously with peers during recess, how to tie shoes, and other personal tasks for special needs children.
Day in and day out, I watch these individuals, sometimes under great pressure, lay down their lives for the many children in their care. Today's teachers go above and beyond what is expected and they are not recognized enough for what hey do. That is why, this month, I have decided to honor ALL teachers everywhere!
CONGRATULATIONS - TEACHERS EVERYWHERE!!
You are the Anna's Friends EDUCATORS OF THE MONTH!!
