"Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself." — John Dewey


It's TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK at North Greene Jr/Sr High School.  a time when we can give back to our teachers.  it's a fact that education greatly affects a child's future, and that means that a teacher can hold all the power in the world when it comes to educating his or her students. 

I grew up with a mother who is a teacher, so I can tell you from a first-hand account that teaching goes way past the classroom. It requires hours of time outside of school prepping lessons, mastering material, and going above and beyond for students when they need additional help. To be a teacher is to devote your life to the betterment of the future, and it is to do it with a selfless heart and open mind.

It's Teacher Appreciation Week, but the love shouldn't stop on Friday. This noble profession is often underpaid and undervalued despite its tremendous selflessness, and that, my friends, just isn't OK. If you know a teacher, tell them how wonderful they are and how much you appreciate what they do — not just this week, but throughout the entirety of the year.

Check back daily to what we have in store for our Teachers and be sure to THANK a TEACHER this week.
