Teachers adapt their leadership:
When it comes to our Gilmour Community, I believe that we should celebrate our faculty and staff here at the Academy. For one, they have had to completely change how they run things from classwork as well as how they give homework out over this new digital platform. My mother is a teacher at Gilmour, and I see firsthand how this pandemic has totally changed everyone’s style. She works at the Lower School, and I’m equally amazed at what I see happening at the Upper School. Even with all these hard times of not seeing everyone in person and getting to talk, I feel our teachers are doing a phenomenal job. They’re really helping us feel much better about getting through this difficult time. So I think we should be celebrating and commending our teachers for their stellar efforts.
Teachers help no matter what:
As students and parents feel the toll of this pandemic, I see how our teachers have put their students’ needs first. Having students finish the school year with pride and a strong sense of accomplishment appears to be every teacher’s goal. All seniors have lost their last months of school, and their teachers made every effort to help seniors finish strong and feel special. Whether choosing the Senior Award recipients or attending the Car Parade, teachers of seniors are
showing great support through these tough times. In conclusion, even though everyone is struggling through this pandemic, this is also the perfect time to reflect and thank all the teachers for all they have done for us.
