If you wanted to summarize the philosophy of excellence in teaching, consider the remarks of these teachers, who were among the five honored recently with Jackson Chamber of Commerce Educator of the Year awards.
Also receiving the award were Christy Shinn, of Jackson High School, and Shannon Heisserer, elementary instructional facilitator for the Jackson School District.
Good teachers are inspirational. They inspire students to do their best work. They inspire other teachers to meet their daily classroom challenges. They inspire parents to take active roles in their children's education.
Students in Jackson's public and parochial schools are fortunate to have teachers like these.
Hats off to this year's Educator of the Year honorees. And a special thanks to all teachers who give our children expert guidance and encouragement.
