Many school years are as follows: 180 calendar days, 5 days a week, 7 hours a day
180 calendar days x 7 hours a day = 1,260 hours of school time
In this time, this substantial amount of time that can be extended thanks to summer school as well as before and after-school activities, teachers have the ability to make a monumental impact on their students’ lives.
In their multi-dimensional roles, teachers can foster:
- a love of learning
- a global perspective
- a love of sports
- cultural awareness
- an appreciation for the arts
- school pride
- a sense of belonging
. . . and this list is not exhaustive.
As mentors, as positive role models, as those entrusted with the care and education of our future, teachers have the ability to foster the very best elements of humanity. It is an amazing job, and privilege, to be a positive influence on the future generation.
All my love and appreciation to the teachers fostering the very best. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
