Celebrate Our TPCS Team
Next week is our annual Teacher Appreciation Week. Each year there are many reasons to celebrate our faculty and staff. This year there is a greater reason to celebrate our employees. We have all struggled through COVID and the impact it has had on our lives.
I have watched our teachers do an incredible job of teaching and loving your kids through this time with remarkable resilience and perseverance. I have seen teachers who are uncomfortable with technology work with the necessary tools to meet the needs of our students who are learning from home. I have watched as teachers have adapted how they teach to accommodate students in the room and those who are online. There has been a substantial increase in the workload for our teachers as their classes have moved from in-person to virtual and back to in-person. I have watched teachers remain in the classroom, risking exposure to contact with kids and adults who were COVID+. I have watched teachers teach from home as COVID made its way through their families.
To say the least, I am very proud of our faculty and staff for the work they have done this year to provide your child with an exceptional education. I am proud of all the support staff as they have carried an increased burden placed on them by COVID mandates. Each of our employees is to be commended for the work and effort that this year has demanded of them.
Romans 13:7 reminds us to give honor where honor is due. 7 Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed. So let’s make sure that during Teacher Appreciation Week, we recognize our teachers and staff for the incredible work they have done this year. I love our team.
