To wrap up Teacher Appreciation Week, here is a small sampling of what teachers said they did for students:
I had a student in first period who struggled with getting to school on time. On my way to school, I would pick him up and bring him so he would make it!
One of my seniors moved in with me at the beginning of 2nd semester senior year because he/she had nowhere to go and wanted to finish high school here.
When a student was gone for an extended illness, I would go to her home twice a week to help tutor her.
I’ve provided meals for hungry students.
Let’s thank our teachers for all they do both inside and outside of the classroom!
