Special to GUIDON

This week, Teacher Appreciation Week — including National Teacher Appreciation Day, Wednesday — is an opportunity to say “thank you” to the teachers and professionals in education who not only serve our military children, but also support our Families and communities.  

Since 1985, our nation has formally celebrated educators the first week of May. We encourage you to honor teachers this week, and year round, for their lasting contributions to our academic accomplishments, and for their impacts on our lives.  

There are few professionals that directly shape future generations of America the way that educators do.  

Teachers helped us learn when we struggled, provided motivation when we were down, and served as inspiration for our future goals; they deeply influenced not only who we were, but who we grew up to be.

Let us renew our commitment to staying involved with our educators.

Take time to foster a relationship with teachers in our community, support our kids and their academic achievements, and remain engaged in our local school systems throughout the year.

We appreciate all educators in the Fort Leonard Wood area school systems.  

Thank you for all you do to make this a great place to live, learn, and work. We are proud to serve with you.

Victory starts here — victory through skill.
