Teacher Appreciation Week

JMU News

by Hannah Lynn Robinson



Teachers take our hands to guide us into new worlds of wonder; they offer us experiences that challenge our current understandings; and they offer their hearts as they build relationships of trust and care, says Teresa Harris, professor of early, elementary, and reading education at James Madison University.

Harris is available to discuss the importance of Teacher Appreciation Week and the value that teachers bring to classrooms as well as the lives of students.

The College of Education handed 207 diplomas to future teachers on Saturday, May 4— many of whom will go forth to enrich the lives of students around the world. The College of Education has the longest history at James Madison University since the institution was established as a teaching college in 1908. The college seeks to prepare educated and enlightened individuals who can skillfully contribute to the common good of society.
