Time to celebrate our teachers
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
