Celebrating Our Teachers on Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher appreciation week is here! This is an opportunity for students and the community to recognize and honor the dedication of teachers. During Teacher Appreciation Week, schools and communities across the country take time from their regular busy schedule to express their appreciation for teachers in the ways they can.

In this article, we will take a closer look at some of the teachers in our community that the students of Northwood felt they wanted to recognize. I asked some friends to give shout-outs to some of their favorite teachers. Here’s what they had to say. All of Northwood’s faculty are celebrated in this post.

Thank you, teachers! We appreciate you!

“Mr. LeBlanc has really been a great teacher this year. He helps us learn but also loves our silliness. A fun teacher and also a great person to have help you. It’s been a great year having him teach us, and we look forward to having fun with him in class next year.”
