A Message to Our Teachers

Teaching is everything. You build relationships, you inspire, you draw out human potential. There is no more important job or work than teaching and learning!

While this week is Teacher Appreciation Week, in my mind, every day is teacher appreciation day.

As the leader of this organization, I appreciate you; as a parent and as a Success Academy parent, as an educator, I appreciate all that you do!

I appreciate your hard work. I appreciate your high expectations. I appreciate the demands you make of our scholars. I appreciate the joy you infuse into your classrooms and how nurturing you are. I appreciate your willingness to collaborate and be school teachers rather than classroom teachers. I appreciate how invested you are in the whole child, in discovery-oriented science, conceptual math, and great critical and creative thinking!

I appreciate that you care deeply not only about the kids in your class and in your school, but across our schools and indeed across our city, state, and country.

I love that you are ed reform warriors, that you believe every child matters, and that we want great schools for ALL kids!

And someday, you will have changed the course of history because of your daily commitments! Someday, you will have transformed a generation, and society will be so indebted to you as our kids come back and change their communities forever. Someday, you will find that you have empowered a new generation of leaders!

ThankYouThank you, this week and every week!
