Delaware Teacher Of The Year Sandra Denney Hall Has An Important Message!

Sandra Denney Hall was selected as the Delaware Teacher of the Year last fall.  Today, she has an important message regarding Teacher Appreciation Week.

I hope all teachers can share something positive – a picture or video – about teaching tomorrow on #TeachLikeMe Day tomorrow, Tuesday, May 2nd! Be sure to include the hashtag #TeachLikeMe on your page!

Teach Like Me is a movement that started in Oklahoma and is now spreading through the nation. The purpose is to redefine perceptions of the educator profession by lifting up and supporting all teachers! So show your love of teaching in Delaware by sharing a picture or video tomorrow!

So go ahead Delaware citizens, educators, students and parents!  Share what you love about our teachers!

Thank A Teacher This Week!

Yesterday was the beginning of Teacher Appreciation Week for 2016. It goes without saying, we should always thank the teachers. They have a tough job. They are, in a sense, back-up parents for our children. For those who are parents out there, have you ever had that moment with one or more of your kids where you just want to escape to the Bahamas for a few years? We’ve all had those moments. Now imagine a classroom full of those kids, and it isn’t play time. It’s time to learn time. And teachers can’t (and shouldn’t) say a lot of the things parents say to their kids. Why wouldn’t we appreciate them? I’ve given teachers a rough time since my son entered Kindergarten, but they all deserve kudos for multiple reasons. So when you are out and about this week, let your child’s teacher know how much you appreciate them. Give them a WaWa gift card, or some flower seeds, or a card, or anything. We have a symbiotic relationship with teachers. We both want our children to succeed. We must appreciate them!
