Great Teachers make all the Difference!

Posted: January 20, 2012 in Uncategorized

We made it to Friday–and a records day for teachers.  As you are working on finishing up the quarter and semester, I think it’s a great time to remember what a difference great teachers make in the lives of kids.  While I know there’s lots of talk about linking student growth to evaluations and this article mentions value added measures–I think the study reminds us in the big picture of how important teachers are in the lives of students.  Teachers–thank you for the hard work you do each day to make a difference not only in student achievement, but also in the lives of kids!
