Time to cel­e­brate our teach­ers

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

As an­other school year ends, I am writ­ing to en­cour­age peo­ple in Peter­bor­ough to cel­e­brate a teacher who en­cour­aged, in­spired or sup­ported them dur­ing their school years.

It’s im­por­tant we thank teach­ers who work one-to-one with pupils, in­spir­ing the next gen­er­a­tion and en­sur­ing they re­ceive all the sup­port they need to suc­ceed.

Yet, we of­ten don’t take time to thank our teach­ers, or re­alise the en­cour­age­ment they pro­vide and the last­ing im­pact they can have.

That’s why I’m sup­port­ing the na­tional Get Into Teach­ing cam­paign to give teach­ers the praise they de­serve, and en­cour­age peo­ple to con­sider teach­ing as a ca­reer.

Ev­ery­one can get in­volved and say thanks to a teacher with a Tweet or In­sta­gram post, copy­ing in the hash­tag #thankateacher.

Teach­ing can be a ca­reer full of re­wards, and as the sum­mer hol­i­days be­gin, there is still time for grad­u­ates and po­ten­tial ca­reer chang­ers in Peter­bor­ough to ap­ply now to start teacher train­ing this Septem­ber. Roger Pope Chair Na­tional Col­lege for Teach­ing and Lead­er­ship
