Do you know a teacher that goes above and beyond when it comes to the safety of our children?
Teachers are heroes and should be treated as such. I honestly don't know how they do it, day after day. I have three kids and there are days that make me want to run away. I don't know how teachers can have 30 - 150 kids every day for 8 or more hours a day, 180 days of the year. Not to mention all of the added demands, test scores, safety drills, and extra curricular activities they are required to fulfill.
Teachers are with our kids more waking hours than we are sometimes. They are the warriors and we need to give them the tools to help them, encourage them, reinvigorate them, and support them.
I love teachers and want to honor their hard work. I am going to award 5 teachers with a spa day. This award will be given out once each semester.
If you would like to nominate a teacher or yourself, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the answers to the following questions:
1. Tell me about a situation where the teacher noticed the safety of a student was threatened, or the student was being treated unfairly or inappropriately where the teach spoke up and took action that included reporting to administration. Tell me the outcome and how it affected the student.
2. Tell me how this teacher has inspired others.
