The Great Importance of Teachers

National Teacher Appreciation Day is March 4th.

In 2020 school looked very different for many families. Some guardians homeschooled their kids for the first time and Zoom meetings replaced the classroom for many students.  Teachers faced new obstacles and found creative ways to educate in trying circumstances. This disruption of learning helped us appreciate our teachers more than ever before. Now, as in-person learning is in sight, we honor our teachers and look forward to seeing them in the classroom once more.
