Dear BAMS Family,
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week and I wanted to take a moment to publically acknowledge the amazing work of our teachers. It is a tremendous responsibility to be daily entrusted with your most valuable possessions-your children. Many of our teachers are also parents and completely understand and appreciate that concept. I can personally testify that our teachers fully understand the high stakes position they have chosen as careers. They appreciate that a single word can encourage a student to accomplish amazing things. Likewise, they also recognize that using the wrong words can shatter a student’s hopes and dreams. This type of influence is always on the mind of our teachers as they walk the fine line of pushing your children to new levels of learning while making sure that failure is viewed only as a learning opportunity and not their self-identity. The job of teaching does not end when students get out of school. On any given night, you will find a dozen cars in our parking lot of teachers grading, preparing lessons for the next school day, calling parents, and conducting parent/teacher conferences all with the single goal of making sure that your child receives an amazing education. We care very much for your children! I am extremely proud to work with these fine teachers and although they deserve acknowledgement every day, I especially honor them today. Please join me in saying thank you to all of the amazing teachers that have touched our lives as adults as well as our children’s’ lives. This week is for you!!!!
If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.
