Teacher Appreciation

This month, Cherokee Creek Boys School is excited to join many people across the country to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week.

The celebration is a special time dedicated to giving teachers the extra credit they deserve. The NEA, (National Educators Association) created the event which they describe as a time to honor teachers and recognize the lasting contributions they make to our lives.

Teacher Appreciation Week is officially recognized as the first full week of May, but at CCBS Academic Learning is such a critical part of our program, we like to honor our teachers throughout the year.

Our Academic Dean, Calvin Croxton reminds us that the teachers themselves are the critical pillar to our CCBS approach to learning.

“At CCBS, our teaching team has great experience, education and credentials. They need to know their subject matter, but there is an important and much bigger piece of the puzzle. To really help a student, it is important to remember that most students don’t care how much you KNOW until they know how much you CARE. Caring about each student is a critical and core pillar of our teaching style at CCBS.
