Why We Love Educators
It’s teacher appreciation week and we couldn’t resist sharing our own A-Z Guide for why we love educators so much!
A - is for your attentiveness. You pay attention to your students and get to know each one personally.
B - is for your best self. We love how you manage to give your students your best selves each and every day.
C - is for your courage. You’re undaunted by the naysayers and your critics and press on to do what’s right for students no matter what.
D - is for your discipline. You resist the pull of the latest fad and stick to those principles that are best for your students.
E - is for your effort. You always give 200% on behalf of your students.
F - is for your focus. You don’t let anything distract you from your purpose and your goals.
genG - is for your generosity. You unselfishly give of yourself to all your students and their families.
H - is for your heart. You don’t just “phone it in.” You teach from your hearts.
I - is for your individuality. There is no one version of a master teacher. Instead, you are able to be exactly who you are and still be a master at your craft.
J - is for the joy you bring to the classroom and to the lives of the students you serve.
K - is for your kindness. You show your compassion for your students and meet them where they are.
