11 May In Appreciation of Teachers

The teachers had roasted marshmallows all over their hands but they didn’t seem to mind.  As the Schechter Manhattan faculty distributed smores to the students around the Lag Baomer campfire last week, they smiled at each other and their students, enjoying the fun and messy moment.  I saw two teachers give each other a sticky, melted marshmallow high five. The Schechter Manhattan teachers were great throughout field day. They had fun playing games with their students- kickball and gaga and relay races.  They made sure that all of the students were included and found ways to participate that felt good for each of them. And they cared for their students, making sure they had sunscreen on and enough to drink on the hot day, and giving attention to any student in need.  I was reminded how proud I am to work with such talented, dedicated educators.
