EMOTIONAL, SOCIAL AND ACADEMIC SUCCESS
As he approached the podium to address the BOE directors, Joey Templeton, 17, Patriot High School eleventh-grader, was overcome with emotion. “I really haven’t had a proud life for myself,” said Joey, “and this is a moment where I should be really happy. This program itself has directly changed my life a lot and it’s a great thing for not only this school but for my district. It will help the progression of students at-risk and I appreciate all of you giving us a chance to excel in this.”
The work of a teacher is full of passion and commitment. It requires initiative from process improvement to individualized attention. We celebrate our educators for the important role they have. We salute them for the valuable service they provide to students and the community.
