A Tribute to Our Educators: Teachers Appreciation Day 2015

Teachers play a key role in student success, and although some may seem like they don’t need to be acknowledged – a simple “thanks” can go a long way in a teacher’s life. Teachers may not get paid the most, but they certainly make more of a difference than almost anyone else. They spend their lives improving the lives of others, sharing knowledge, and working for a bright future for the next generation.

South Lancaster Academy is a small school in which students have really good connections with their teacher. Because of a 1:17 ratio they have a chance to be more involved and know one another more. The SLA Pioneer decided to ask some students how much they appreciate their teachers and what can they say about their teachers unique classroom environments.


Mr Lambert – History

“I appreciate how far Mr. Lambert has achieved as a teacher and made his way into becoming principal. I will definitely miss him as a history teacher and making his class environment the best high school experience”- Sophia Cantrell

 “Thank you Mr. Lambert for being such a great such great mentor, you’re a “cool hip” teacher!”- Leo Zamo

Mrs. Cady Music

She always goes above and beyond by hosting Friday night rehearsals in her home, staying after school to have an necessary extra rehearsal, and making sure she has a relationship with each one of her students. She is definitely a teacher that is appreciated by her pupils. I can speak for all the Vocé seniors that we will be heartbroken once we leave Vocé behind.” – Raissa Silva

“Ms. Cady is a driven and talented music director with the ability to teach her students how to understand and sing music to the best of their ability. I appreciate her not only as a teacher but as a person because she inspires me through her actions and is a very good mentor.” Dylan Gibbons
