Our district recently held two celebrations combined into one (they used to be separate).  The ceremonies consisted of recognizing those people that earned professional teacher status, and those people who had milestone anniversaries (5 yrs, 10 yrs, etc.).  It is a great way to show people that you value them and that you recognize their staying with the district and working on behalf of children.  I’m always amazed when people get up on stage and are recognized for achievements such as 30 years, 35 years….and believe it or not, I had a teacher that was recognized for 60 years.  (No, that wasn’t a typo, 60 years of teaching). I’m grateful that we have such great traditions and celebrations that contribute to a positive work place! #fiskeschool #celebration #milestone #professionalstatus #longevity @fiskeschool
