RESOLUTION NO. R99-1530
A resolution honoring the Metro Teachers of the Year for 1998-99.
WHEREAS, Americas greatest strength has always been an educated citizenry; and
WHEREAS, that educated citizenry is directly attributable to our system of free and universal public education that provides an educational opportunity for all students; and
WHEREAS, the foundation upon which that system of public schooling rests is the classroom teachers; and
WHEREAS, the classroom teacher is challenged daily to reach out to every student-regardless of ability, interest in learning, social or economic background, physical, mental or emotional handicap, race, religion, creed, or ethnic origin--to provide the assistance and guidance necessary for full intellectual development; and
WHEREAS, the classroom teacher is a key to the intellectual and occupational preparation of individual citizens, who, collectively, determine the quality of life in America and in this community; and
WHEREAS, the work of the classroom teacher immeasurably affects the future lives of all students; and
WHEREAS, the classroom teacher deserved the deepest respect and admiration of the citizens of this community; and
WHEREAS, it is fitting and proper that the Metropolitan Council honor each teacher for their dedication, superior ability to teach and to inspire in students a love of learning.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
SECTION 1. The Metropolitan County Council hereby goes on record on honoring the Metro Teachers of the Year for 1998-99.
