Today is Teacher Appreciation Day and we want to celebrate the hard-working, selfless souls who dedicate their lives to providing guidance, wisdom, and support to kids in Indy and across the country. During the school year, students spend more waking hours with their classroom teacher than with their parents or guardians. Our public school teachers must wear many different hats as they meet the day-to-day needs of their students. They must be emotionally present while holding firm boundaries. They plan for every minute of the day while staying flexible enough to turn on a dime. And they do their best to stay connected with parents, families, and the surrounding community. We want to recognize the patience, creativity, and commitment to growth that teachers in Indy and all over the country demonstrate day in and day out. Thank you for everything you do!
