Nowhere without talented teachers | Letters

We simply can’t say it enough:  “Thank you Friday Harbor teachers!”

As we celebrate National Teacher Appreciation Week May 6-10, we want to give a big thank you to the dedicated teachers and staff that make our island children thrive.

Our schools may be small compared to many, but success is overflowing in so many ways, including Friday Harbor High School just receiving another US News and World Report Gold Medal, ranking #5 out of 587 Washington schools.

As William Arthur Ward is quoted as saying, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”

We are indeed lucky as a community to have inspiring educators giving students their best!

FHHS PTA Board, Cathy Kromer, Diana Stepita, Trudy Loucks, Linda Prager, Jan Bollwinkel-Smith
