Happy National Teacher Appreciation Week!

Teacher Appreciation Week is held each year during the first full week of May. This is a week where people around the nation take extra time to acknowledge, thank and encourage the men and women who work hard to shape the minds and character of our children. I want to encourage our Board, staff and community to take advantage of this great opportunity to appreciate our School District of Janesville teachers, showing them how thankful we are for the work they do for our community. Whether by note, email, card or phone call, please take time this week to thank the teachers who have had an impact on your life or are currently having an impact on your or your children’s lives.

It is not only what they are teaching that makes them important, as this quote by Carl Jung shows: “One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.”
