"Teaching is weighty work, it’s necessary and it’s needed. Every day, I try to find ways to reach my students. My kids come in and give me their best, often despite what life is giving back to them. I want them to know I’m giving them my best too. If I can open a child's eyes to the wonders of knowledge and infuse them with a lifelong love for learning, then I have done my job. I teach … to change my student's lives.”
Stefan Lawrence – an English teacher at G. W. Carver High School in Columbus, Georgia – is typical of the exceptional teachers that the Muscogee Educational Excellence Foundation (MEEF) sends to Harvard each year. This graduate program is expensive – about $6,000 per teacher. But the results – making exceptional teachers even better – have results that last a lifetime.
For teachers to give students their best every day they must have tools in their toolboxes and this Harvard program is one of the most extraordinary tools around. Please consider honoring Stefan Lawrence and other exceptional teachers so they can change their student’s lives.
“Teaching is the one profession that creates all other professions.”
