The task of providing a strong foundation upon which all other learning first falls on the shoulders of an elementary teacher.  From greeting frightened kindergartners on the first day of school to sending confident 5th graders on to middle school, the building blocks of learning are formed in these teachers' classrooms.  Middle school and high school teachers continue to impact students' lives helping to get them ready to successfully navigate college and/or career, ultimately preparing them to be productive, engaged citizens.

 

LRSD proudly salutes all of its teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week.
