I found an additional video showing some famous faces thanking teachers during this special week. It was posted on Speed of Creativity by Wesley Fryer and in a little over a minute you will hear from a number of people sharing the importance of a great teacher in their lives.
Watching the video once again makes me so thankful for our teachers. They work under difficult conditions with our buildings FULL, class sizes growing, and no relief in site for the crowded conditions. They impose high standards on themselves and our students achieve at high levels. Given this current reality, we are blessed to have committed teachers who adapt to the conditions and continue to pursue excellence. My hope is that they and we can continue to sustain this performance until we can find a solution that our community can support.
So, one more time THANK YOU!
