RESOLUTION NO. RS2000-158
A resolution recognizing the Metropolitan Teachers of the Year for 1999-2000.
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 this community; and
WHEREAS, the work of the classroom teacher immeasurably affects the future lives of all students; and
WHEREAS, teachers strive for excellence in their profession when they know that the community supports them and appreciates their efforts on behalf of our children; 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 METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
SECTION 1. The Metropolitan County Council hereby goes on record as recognizing the Metropolitan Teachers of the Year for 1999-2000.
SECTION 2. The Metropolitan Council Staff Office is hereby directed to prepare a certificate to be presented to each 1990-2000 Metropolitan Teacher of the Year.
