May 8, 2018, Prescott-
Last week was Teacher Appreciation Week, in our school district. Today, on a national scale, is Teacher Appreciation Day. As with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, most will be honoured and appreciated. Some will meet with hostility or indifference from their charges. Well, we can’t legislate love and honour,now, can we?,All in all, this year I feel appreciated and respected-both by my colleagues It is a work in progress, just like last year, but day to day we are on point and have proactive plans that are student-centered, rather than centered on outside interests.
My own perspective and focus have also returned to that which I held in the 1990’s, before the political firestorms of 1998-2001, and before Penny’s health became my be-all and end-all. Back then, it was the total student who mattered. The building and sustaining of wide-ranging goals and dreams are again front and center.
Appreciate people and they appreciate you back.,
