Riverview Elementary School is a place that is focused on its core purpose of causing learning.
This week is Riverview Teacher Appreciation Week. I truly appreciate our teachers!
Our teachers take slivers out of fingers and bad sports out of kick ball. They know when a child has gum in his mouth even when he is not chewing. They have sung “Happy Birthday” 657 times.
They hand over scissors with the handles up. They can listen to one child talk about his birthday party and another talk about her sleepover and another talk about getting stitches last night-all at the same time.
There are certain things that a teacher must never do: Never pour Plaster of Paris down the sink. Never stand on a bathroom scale when teaching your students about pounds and ounces. Never throw a wilted flower away in front of the child who gave it to you no matter how droopy it is. And never forget to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day.
