RESOLUTION NO. RS2002-966
A resolution recognizing the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools 2002-2003 "Teacher of the Year" award recipients.
WHEREAS, the prestigious "Teacher of the Year" award is presented to educators who inspire a love of learning in their students while taking an active role in their communities; and
WHEREAS, America's greatest strength has always been an educated citizenry which 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 the system of public schooling rests is the individual classroom teacher who exhibits the ability to work effectively and cooperatively with their colleagues and different groups in the community, as well as the desire to keep abreast of current educational theories and practices and the ability and willingness to make meaningful contributions to the field of education; 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, 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 congratulate all 2002-2003 "Teacher of the Year" award winners for their dedication, superior ability to teach and to inspire in students the love of learning.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
