Teachers have been infusing Social and Emotional Learning into their curricula and classrooms far longer than we’ve been calling it “Social and Emotional Learning.” Indeed, teachers are really the ones who invented it. The relationships that teachers build with their students, from day 1 in August to the last day in June, are the catalysts that cause academic knowledge and understanding to take root and grow in the minds of young people. Let’s just take a moment to mentally thank a teacher that has influenced our lives.
Listen up teachers,
You are doing that, amazing advocates! Also,
dear teachers, you are truly touching the future of the world.
that whole thing about educating young people to function in jobs that don’t exist yet? YOU ARE DOING IT.
All those hours spent crafting questions, generating lesson plans, differentiating, creating just the right experience to allow each student to find the knowledge and meaning in his or her unique way: teachers are masterful architects of learning.
You are teaching whole people, and these whole people deeply appreciate your far-reaching influence on their lives.
Thank you, teachers, for your strength, creativity, dedication and love of your craft. Thank you for being the champions.
We are #AISDproud and truly grateful for our teachers. Have a most spectacular summer!
