They’re there it inspire, guide and mentor. They make sure we know our ABCs and 1, 2, 3s. They’re teachers and we at Temple Terrace Patch think they are pretty darn special.
In honor of National Teacher Appreciation Week, May 7-11, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the teachers that helped shape our lives and yours. We’d also like to recognize the special teachers in our community that have made an impact on you and your children.
To show our teachers that we all care, we invite you to share your stories about teachers who have gone above and beyond to help guide you or your children.
Just share your stories in the comments section below.
You can also upload photos right to this story of your favorite teachers or favorite school year activities.
The Hillsborough County School Board perhaps says its best in the proclamation it intends to pass tomorrow declaring this week Teacher Appreciation Week in our county:
WHEREAS, teachers open children’s minds to the magic of ideas, knowledge and dreams; and
WHEREAS, teachers keep American democracy alive by laying the foundation for good citizenship; and
WHEREAS, teachers fill many roles as listeners, explorers, role models, motivators, and mentors; and
WHEREAS, great teachers make great public schools; and
WHEREAS, teachers continue to influence us long after our school days are only memories;
Now, therefore, We, the School Board of Hillsborough County, Do hereby proclaim the week of May 7-11, 2012, as Teacher Appreciation Week and Tuesday May 8, 2012, As National Teacher Day
