Say Thank You to a Teacher Today

If you haven’t already said “thank you” to a Crofton teacher this week – National Teacher Appreciation Week – it’s not too late!

Most of us can remember one very special teacher that stood out above every other in our years between kindergarten and 12th grade  the teachers who really challenged us and brought out talents we never realized before.

For me, it was Sister Gonzaga at Blessed Sacrament in Chevy Chase.  My boys would no doubt say Ray Smith at DeMatha Catholic H.S. in Hyattsville. Duane Arbogast was my daughter’s 3rd grade teacher at Crofton Elementary and her all-time favorite – and, in a twist of fate, his son was her student at the University of Maryland!  As you read this, you’re probably thinking of YOUR favorite teacher…

Teacher Appreciation Week in Crofton MDTeacher Appreciation Week comes to an end today for another year, and I think we have to acknowledge that every teacher we encountered during our school years had some kind of impact on us,  not just our favorite.  We took them very much for granted at the time, didn’t we?  

Throughout the week, parent-volunteers and students have hosted breakfasts or lunches for teachers, written essays thanking them, and offered other gestures of appreciation.  Teachers are generally very dedicated people who work more for the love of children than a paycheck, and the majority of them are selfless people who even spend money out of their own pockets for classroom supplies.

I’d like to add my “thank you” to the wonderful teachers in the greater Crofton area.  YOU are the reason our schools are among the best in the county.

If you didn’t really appreciate your teachers when you were in school, make up for that by thanking a local teacher today.  Remember…

The property value of your home depends on the quality of our local teachers and schools!
