Open Thank You to Teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week

May 5, 2017

Dear NISD Family:

Every May, we celebrate and honor teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week for their commitment to our students. As Teacher Appreciation Week comes to an end, I want to take a moment to thank you and tell you how much I appreciate your hard work and dedication. Teachers are the backbone of this district. You are the reason for our students’ success and it is your dedication to your profession and to our students that makes you so important.

Our district is changing for the better and a huge part of this is because of you. You are making a difference, through public education, in every student’s life by educating them so they can accomplish whatever he or she may choose to do in life. It’s all thanks to you that our students are able to do anything they set their heart on. You are truly amazing and continue to influence the world in the most remarkable way possible – education the next generation.

As we approach the end of yet another school year, take heart in the lives you impact, the futures that you build, and the knowledge that there are so many that recognize and support the incredible work you do every day.

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, all campus faculty and staff can enjoy wearing jeans throughout the entire week next week – May 8th to May 12th.

I know how hard you work and I thank each and every one of you for everything you do to create a better future. Thank you for teaching.
