Richfield Principals Send Special Messages to Teachers

It's Teacher Appreciation Week and May 8 is National Teacher Day.

In honor of PTA's Teacher Appreciation Week and National Teacher Day, Richfield Patch gathered special messages from all Richfield Public Schools principals.

This is what they had to say about their teaching staffs:

Principal Jodi Markworth:

To all teachers:

"I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks." ~ William Shakespeare  

Thank you so much for all the hard work and energy you put into your job. When visitors walk through our hallways, they see children learning, working, smiling and laughing. Test scores have now become a way of life in the world of education, but it's vital that we not lose the wonderful moments and memories that happen each and every day. Those memories are because of you and your dedication.

Principal Joey Page:

I believe that school is supposed to be fun, in fact it's incredibly important. The impact of this work is so fulfilling and significant, and it all starts with the most important person in the classroom, the teacher. I am so thankful for my teachers I currently work with and had growing up. The learning they plan, the environment they create, the friendships they help foster, it's all incredible. I wish the very best for my teachers all year, but this week is extra special for those at the heart of learning. 

Principal :

I am continuously impressed with the amount of time and energy the staff at Centennial puts into making sure all students at Centennial are successful! They are an incredibly talented group of teachers who want nothing but the best for our students and families. Thank you for everything you do each and everyday that make Centennial such a "Great Place To Grow!"

Principal Brian Zambreno:

Richfield Middle School (RMS) teachers continue to demonstrate that they are among the very best. They serve a diverse student body and do so with excellence. Over that past few years, our teachers have pushed themselves to learn new and innovative ways to reach students and raise achievement. They work hard to support students at all levels and to provide supportive yet rigorous instruction for all learners. Feedback from our students and the Richfield community shows that their work is greatly appreciated. Here's a big thank you to RMS teachers for all they do!

Principal Marta Shahsavand:

Dear RDLS faculty,

Whether you are a teacher, paraprofessional, social worker, nursing assistant, family liaison, building maintenance, food and service person, or secretary, we are all part of a very important job of educating and giving our students the vital knowledge to live and be successful.

As adults, we ALL need appreciation for what we do, so I want to assure you that although working at RDLS sometimes feels like an unappreciated effort day in and day out, it is NOT.

I appreciate all those extra things; those extra hours you work to ensure learning and to help our students to be successful.

Because of my appreciation for you, I have done small things like provide snacks and bagels during a regular school or staff development day and chocolates in main office for you to “keep going.”

These tokens do not measure all that you do for RDLS, but it is a small way to show my appreciation for who you are as a person, as a professional, and for all you do for our students.

Muchísimas gracias my excellent RDLS team!

Principal :

My greatest appreciation this year has been working with a staff of teachers that is committed to unity. The teaching staff is committed to the Richfield community and works endlessly in looking for ways to improve their practice. They also support each other daily and show their appreciation for one another throughout each day of their careers.
