Teacher Watch
It’s Teacher Appreciation Week and Tuesday is Teacher Appreciation Day. We often thank our “heroes” - doctors, nurses, soldiers, fire fighters and police for their tireless service. But really, many wouldn’t be who we are if it wasn’t for our teachers. So this week, be sure to thank a teacher…
In my case-Mrs. Houston (K), Ms. Kravitz (1st), Mrs. Fanning (2nd), Ms. Brower (3rd), Mr. Lupin (4th), Miss Popolow (5th), Dr. Larkin (6th), and in 7th and 8th - Mr. Jaffe, Miss Luken, Mr. Dressner, Miss Goldstein, Mr. Enama, Ms. Comer, Mr. Johnson (music), Miss. Adler, and all the rest from Finletter Elementary School.
As I look back, I don’t know if any school had such a great mix of caring, sharing, inspiring and motivated teachers. Over the 9 years (K-8) at Finletter I think I worked harder than I ever did in junior high or high school. Homework. Group play. Gym class. School was so important to me. Oh, and while he wasn’t a teacher, Jim our bus driver was awesome. Smiling. Happy. Nothing rattled him. On time every day. Clean bus. Talk about someone who cared about his job and his students. He knew our names by heart. If anyone or anything taught me about being punctual, it was Jim and his bright yellow school bus. That makes Jim a teacher too!!!
Can you remember your elementary school teachers? If so..just say:
