‘Everyone that remembers their education, remembers the teachers. Not the methods and the techniques. It is to say, a good education can change anyone, but a GOOD TEACHER can change EVERYTHING.’🧑‍🏫📚⭐️Across the globe this week it was ‘Teacher Appreciation Week’🤩 Every student that ever passed through the doors of FCJ will remember at least one teacher that stood out to them. A teacher who inspired, cared or committed themselves to the role. Someone who was that significant person in your life, that gave you that push, that told you that you could do it! The teachers that brought you on the overnight trips (And stayed up all night to supervise!!), the teachers that learned lines with you for the musical or that shouted encouragement from the sideline at a match. Or maybe the teacher that gave you that smile when you needed it or stopped to ask were you alright when you were sitting outside Mr Daly’s office with an ice pack on your head! So, here’s to all the teachers out there!🥳#happyteacherappreciationweek #teacherappreciationweek #lecheileschoolstrust #fcjsistersireland #fcjsisters #thankssir #thanksms ... See MoreSee Less
