Honoring the Great Teachers Who Inspire Us
May 9 is National Teacher Appreciation Day, a great opportunity to reflect on the teachers who inspire children to reach their full potential.
The American writer William Arthur Ward once observed, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”
May 9 is National Teacher Appreciation Day, a great opportunity to reflect on the teachers who inspire children to reach their full potential. Zions Bank has been recognizing great teachers for two generations of students with the weekly KSL Teacher Feature awards throughout the school year.
Here are some highlights from the past year:
Consider nominating an outstanding teacher who deserves to be recognized. Winners are honored with an overnight stay at Anniversary Inn, a gift certificate for dinner at the beautiful Roof Restaurant at Temple Square and a pair of season tickets from Hale Centre Theater!
All winners are also invited to attend an end-of-year banquet at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in their honor. In addition, one lucky teacher will win the grand prize two-year lease on a new car courtesy of Burt Brothers Tire and Service.
Even better, reach out to the teachers that are making a difference in the lives of your children and let them know that you appreciate their efforts to prepare them for the future.
