Teachers play an essential role in the education and formation of children. For this reason, last week at Casvi International American School we wanted to join American traditions once again by celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week, a week-long celebration in recognition of teachers and the contributions they make to education.

Without a doubt, this week has come at a very emotional time for many of our native teachers, as the end of the academic year is approaching, and it is always hard to say goodbye to those students who have accompanied us throughout the year. Especially this year has been complicated for all of them, after educating during a pandemic and adapting to all the changes and health measures, the emotions of the end of the course are more emerging than ever.

Teacher Appreciation Week is a time when parents and students are encouraged to thank teachers and show their appreciation for the work they do.
  • When is it celebrated?

Teacher Appreciation Week is celebrated each year during the first full week of May. This week offers students and families the opportunity to show their appreciation and gratitude for what they do for their students.

Since 1984, the month of May in the United States begins with a series of activities and campaigns whose main objective is to “honor and recognize the contributions that teachers make to our lives”, according to the National Education Association.

At Casvi International American School, thanks to its teaching methodology based on the International Baccalaureate from the age of three, and as a reference center for international and global education, its students reach the highest levels of excellence in their academic, linguistic and personal formation. By having an American curriculum with native teachers, students not only live a complete linguistic immersion, but also a cultural immersion, which will give them a real advantage in their professional future.

We must not forget that the teacher is not a mere transmitter of knowledge. Teachers act as a strong socializing agent, who through their training and skills manage to transmit a series of values, which will undoubtedly permeate the education of the new generations.
