Teacher Appreciation Needed This Year More Than Ever

Teacher appreciation week 2022 is the first week of May. This year, more than ever, teachers deserve to be celebrated.

“Our teachers are the frontline to our students’ education. Our district’s vision is all students will complete school prepared for ongoing learning as well as community and global responsibilities. In order to do that, we must take care of our teachers,” said Jenny Knutowski, principal at Golden Gate Middle School.

After two unpredictable years, educators are still dealing with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic while going above and beyond for their school.

Knutowski says that when people are appreciated, they do more. Much like how Golden Gate Middle School uses positive encouragement to build students up, teachers need the same.

Teacher appreciation week provides another opportunity for students, parents, and the community to express their support for schools.

That is why this year, much like last year, Champions For Learning is striving to raise to funds to provide Collier County schools with funding to celebrate teachers at the school level.

100% of all contributions will go to schools for their teacher appreciation week activities.

Last year, some of these activities included food trucks, spirit days, t-shirts and much more.
