--John F. Kennedy
Great Teachers Make Great Public Schools
WHEREAS, teachers make public schools great; and
WHEREAS, teachers work to open students' minds to ideas, knowledge and dreams; and
WHEREAS, teachers keep American democracy alive by laying the foundation for good citizenship; and
WHEREAS, teachers fill many roles, as listeners, explorers, role models, motivators and mentors; and
WHEREAS, teachers continue to influence us long after our school days are only memories;
Now, therefore, I, Calabasas High School Principal
Do hereby proclaim Tuesday, May 3, 2011, as
National Teacher Day
I urge that we observe this day by taking time to recognize and acknowledge the impact of teachers on our lives.
Please reach out a thank a teacher that has influenced you or one of your children.
Thank you to all the teachers.
"The dream begins, most of the time, with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth."--Dan Rather
