Dear Trinity Families and Friends,

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, I would like to share this poem with you…

If You Didn’t Hear This From Anyone Today
Thanks for all that you did today in your classroom…
For making a million little split second decisions for the benefit of your students.
For putting your own needs on hold and keeping them the focus of your day.
For planning for them long before today ever got rolling.
For changing those plans because they didn’t fit someone who needed a little extra.
For smiling, laughing with them and reassuring their efforts, trials and mistakes.
For placing your hand on a shoulder that was exactly what someone needed.
For getting down on the physical level of your students because it matters.
For thinking of a new way to reach someone who wasn’t getting it.
You matter.
Yes –
You matter.


We love our teachers!
