Appreciating Teachers

Thursday 16th May 2019

With exam season now in full swing across many countries, it’s the time when all the hard work by teachers and their colleagues comes to fruition. But how good are we all at appreciating the hard work undertaken by our colleagues, be it at a local level, national level, or even international level. How can (or should) teachers appreciate the work and effort of their colleagues? Sharing resources….relieving the workload pressure…making a well-deserved cup of tea?
