As we celebrate National Teacher Appreciation Week, I would like for you to reflect for a moment back to your days in school and recall that teacher who gave you some extra time, encouraged you along the way, expected the best you could give and made a difference in your life.
The Danville schools are fortunate to have those special kinds of teachers. Teachers who care about each and every child, each and every day. Our teachers continually strive to be the best, to adapt to changing rules and regulations, to adopt new strategies to improve learning and to teach so that each child can learn in ways easiest for them.
They coach and nurture and counsel and do whatever it takes to meet the needs of all students. Our teachers not only give their time, talent and resources to children at school, they also give to communities throughout the commonwealth and the world. On behalf of the Danville Board of Education, I would like to say “thank you” to our staff. You are the models of excellence in all you do for our students!
