Throughout this school year, we’ve had the privilege of featuring one exceptional member of our faculty and staff each month through our Teacher Feature articles. This week, for Teacher Appreciation Week, we’re happy to bring you one Teacher Feature for each day of the week. We hope you enjoy this extra special week full of some of our wonderful teachers, and that it reminds you of some of the special teachers you’ve been blessed with in your life.
Check out our Thank a Teacher Campaign for more details on how we’re thanking our teachers in a BIG way this week.
