“Teachers are expected to reach unattainable goals with inadequate tools. The miracle is that at times they accomplish this impossible task.”
~ Haim Ginott

This year’s theme is, “This is MY Moment.” Goals focus on getting educators to believe their plans of action now will lead to positive changes and transformation in their teaching and learning environments.

Today is teacher appreciation day in Argentina. With that in mind let’s aim to:

Short-term goal– Thank a teacher or thank a student. We can simply tell the person or send a message via a social network. Here are some other ideas.

Long-term goal– Create a project or organize an event where students get to thank others.

Thank You!

Everyday we have the opportunity to transform lives through our actions.  We get to choose how we treat others and how we react to situations. I feel blessed to see numerous examples of teachers who choose to care, love, guide, encourage, listen, challenge, and support.  Thank you!
