Today wraps up a national week of Teacher Appreciation, and we want to echo the many voices of appreciation for the perseverance, ingenuity and compassion of Kent teachers (from K-12 and beyond) during an unexpectedly swift change of course due to the coronavirus. Your flexibity, creativity and stamina in altering the “how” of your teaching merits a Very Loud THANK YOU!
The Kent public of 1920 also recognized the advantage of sufficient and qualified teachers. The Kent Normal College hosted a conference in April to promote good practices and identify needs in education, especially personnel. Posted here are clips from a Kent Tribune report of April 22, 1920 that extend our echo of appreciation and support for a full century of teachers.
