Ohio County Schools teachers stepped up in a challenging time and did all they could for their students.
Ohio County Schools will celebrate “National Teacher Appreciation Week” May 2-8, and school system Superintendent Kim Miller said the work done by the OCS teachers is a source of pride. She commended the teachers for their dedication and their creative virtual-learning lessons made necessary by the COVID-19 pandemic. Miller said she has enjoyed seeing teachers’ enthusiasm in welcoming students back as they transitioned back to a five-day-per-week schedule.
“They are so glad to have their students in the classrooms,” Miller said. “Our teachers are happy that a sense of normalcy is returning, but they still are creating lessons for our remote learners. Our teachers are working harder than ever, and they have been diligent in remaining engaged with students and meeting their academic needs. It’s been amazing to see what they’ve accomplished.”
“National Teacher Appreciation Week” is sponsored by the National PTA. According to the National PTA, teachers play a key role in student success and sometimes a simple “thanks” is all a teacher needs to feel valued. “National Teacher Appreciation Week” is the perfect time to personally thank teachers for their sacrifices and support for children throughout the year. May 4 is “National Teacher Appreciation Day,” and it is also sponsored by the National Education Association.
“Teacher Appreciation Week is a time to thank our educators for providing our students with the education they deserve and instilling in them a love of learning,” Miller said.
