Teachers: Support Beyond Measure

Helen Caldicott once said, “Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth.”  Our teachers and teachers everywhere have an impact and influence on students that is beyond measure.

Sea Island Bank asked our middle school students to write about their teachers as part of an American Education Week project. They received more than 400 touching essays.  Above are just some of the quotes they wrote about their current and former teachers. 

Nigel Washington, a seventh-grader at Langston Chapel Middle School, wrote the winning essay about his sixth-grade math teacher, Joni Chavers.  The opening line of his touching essay states, " How do you know when a teacher is no longer just a teacher, but somehow, in their time spent with you, has earned a place as someone who shapes the way you think, act and see the world around you."

Nigel's words remind us that teachers have a vital role. At Bulloch County Schools, they help fulfill our mission to prepare students to find success and enhance the community's value. We measure that success in many ways, but none is more important than how we positively affect a child's life.

Thank you to each of our teachers past and present for what they mean to our students and community.
