Teacher Appreciation Week
"A day for honoring teachers and recognizing the lasting contributions they make to our lives."
-The National Education Association
Teacher Appreciation Week's origins started in 1944 when a Wisconsin teacher, Mr. Ryan Krug asked political and educational teachers for a day that commemorates teachers. Now National Teacher Day takes place on the Tuesday of Teacher Appreciation Week, the first week of May.
At Hillwood, our valued staff includes Mr. & Mrs. Grantz, Mrs. Kuckuck, Miss Tom, Miss Dawson, Senorita Lourdes, Ms. Schmitt, Miss Marta, Ms. Caine, Ms. Anna and Ms. Moorhead.
