Teacher Appreciation Week: Share Your Stories

Teacher Thank You © 2009 Cameron Blazer

Today, I’m going to lobby for connecting the boarding school internal to the external.

As were fond of observing, boarding schools work so well because they do such a good job of focusing internally — while the the rest of the world can go on unconnected. Great faculty make a boarding school hum and make those sometimes unnoticed contributions to each students growth and education.

It’s teacher appreciation week.

I know that in my boarding school life (as student or faculty member), I never had any idea about teacher appreciation week.

Well there’s your clue and here’s your queue:

We want you to share your teacher appreciations. Stories can come from any angle — a student reminiscence; parent-faculty; faculty-faculty.

Go to our facebook page and show us how boarding school faculty are more than teachers. Show us what their affects on you as mentors, friends, dormitory parents, coaches, and advisors means to you.
