It is important to say “thank you” for a gift. This month, we are saying thank you to our teachers and staff for everything they do for Amelia Academy. For each of them, education is a vocation because they are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of their students.. They spend long hours outside of school hours grading papers, doing lesson plans, and so much more.
What makes expressing appreciation to teachers even more important? “According to Gallup research, only 29% of teachers agree with the statement, “In the last seven days, I have received recognition or praise for doing good work.” (Gallup News, 2017). The same study also found that “teachers rated the work recognition they receive lower than any other employee polled in an extensive workplace-engagement survey.”
This month, we are saying thank you to our teachers and staff. Look for posts on Facebook and Instagram with notes of gratitude for teachers from their students. And, we encourage you to join in saying “thank you” to the teachers in your life or your children’s lives.
