EOS Education by Boxlight and Clayton County Public Schools (Jonesboro, GA) proudly united to host the inaugural Teacher Appreciation Celebration, an event organized by the EOS Education Digital Learning Specialist Team. This extraordinary occasion not only celebrated and honored the District’s exceptional teachers but also underscored our enduring partnership and commitment to supporting the district's goal of making a positive impact on students through educational technology and services. This celebration also serves as one of the many collaborative events we have planned with CCPS.
Teaching is one of the most rewarding yet challenging professions out there. Teachers play an important role in shaping the future of our society by inspiring and motivating students to reach their full potential. They work tirelessly to create engaging lessons, foster critical thinking skills, and provide emotional support to their students. As an education technology company, we understand the hard work and dedication that teachers put into their jobs, and we want to take a moment to say "Thank you” to teachers everywhere for their invaluable contributions to education.
From when I was little girl, I have always wanted to teach. Many of my teachers influenced my decision, most especially my high school English teacher, Ms. Weiss. She was generous with her time, taught in a calm but engaging manner, and above all, always made me feel like I mattered. I can imagine that if Ms. Weiss was still teaching today, during this time of social distancing and stay-at-home directives, she would be checking in with each of her students via email, text, or phone, setting up one-on-one virtual chats to provide help with assignments, and facilitating collaborative writing sessions with her classes. Teaching, and students, was her heart.
