|A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.|
May 7th is officially National Teacher's Day, but here at the Academy we believe teachers should be celebrated every day! Teachers play a huge role in shaping our lives, from our very first tentative days of school, right through to our confident celebrations in cap and gown. Teachers spark a love of learning, inspire creativity, inform future careers, and teach us the skills we need to achieve our dreams.
In honor of National Teacher's Day, we present resources designed to help teachers do their jobs (because we know that even teachers never stop learning).
