“Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to all of you PSS and Hopwood teachers! Thank you for guiding us as students to help achieve our goals and dreams. Thank you for constantly encouraging us. Thank you for making a difference in every student’s life. Thank you for being there even though you all are going through a tough time. We couldn’t thank you enough for being the best teachers you all could possibly be! We are all Hilitai Strong!”
—Jiro Motenejo, Chalan Kanoa
“Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we have many things to be grateful for and that includes our teacher! I would like to thank teachers because of their efforts in providing us with the education and foundation that we as students long for. At these times, teachers have not only gone out their way to give us love, care, and support, but have done that…virtually. As a student, I [want] to thank these educators because, without them, I would not have gained the stability and fruitful knowledge to become a well-rounded individual. Stay strong, teachers, for your pupils are supporting you, just as how you’ve always supported us.
—Kalea Borja, Kagman
“Thank you for everything you’ve done for your students. We can’t thank you enough for all you do to provide us the best education we need. Although things have been really rough, we will always stand by your side. You all continue to inspire and motivate us every day to help us succeed in life. You all changed our lives in many ways that we’ll cherish forever. Thank you for constantly encouraging us and guiding us to achieve our goals in life. Thank you for always being there for us no matter what. We miss you teachers, happy Teacher’s Appreciation Week!”
— Daphne Cruzana, DanDan
“Thank you for never giving up on us even when times are tough. I had so many teachers that acted as role models to me and I can’t thank them enough. To all my past mentors, thank you for never leaving me behind. And to all the teachers out there, thank you for working so hard to make the future of the CNMI educated!”
—Christian Bravo, Chinatown
“Despite the whole controversy between PSS and the government and the COVID-19 situation, the love and appreciation I have for my teachers will never change. The challenges they face while still being able to work and keep in touch with their students inspires me. I even consider some to be my second mom or dad. This situation made me realize how much I actually miss seeing them and sitting in their classrooms. I am grateful for all the countless hours you put into lesson planning, teaching, grading, coaching, chaperoning, counseling, and many more! Your hard work and dedication toward the school system will never be left unnoticed.”
—Charlene Danganan, San Jose
“Even before this pandemic, I was fortunate and blessed to be given such enthusiastic and passionate instructors. I cannot commend them enough for what they do. They have helped and guided me so much that new opportunities opened up for me. Through this pandemic, they’ve stayed passionate in class and try their best to engage, interact, and most importantly, check up on us. And for all of that, I am forever grateful and appreciative of all teachers that work tirelessly for us students. We love you, happy Teacher Appreciation Week!”
—John Delos Reyes, Chalan Kanoa
“We often forget what important roles teachers play in our lives. We may not realize it but teachers impact our lives more than we could ever imagine. Without them, we would not be standing at where we are today. They don’t just educate us, but they also teach us valuable life lessons. I would like to show my gratitude to all teachers and everything they have done for me and my fellow classmates. I want to remind them though this difficult time [that] we still love and think of them. We are grateful for their efforts, happy Teacher Appreciation Week!”
—Davean Gonzales, Gualo Rai
“Our teachers do so much more for us than we think. They spend countless hours and efforts for our growth, not just as students but as people. They are patient and hardworking, sometimes sacrificing sleep and even their own needs to put us, students, first. They are selfless and considerate, doing everything in their power to incorporate even just one student’s thoughts and feelings. They are caring and compassionate, for it takes the kindness out of one’s heart to teach. They are strong, because even in times of hardship, they are still there to guide us. They do all these things, yet we sometimes forget to acknowledge all that they do. So, to every teacher, from every student, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We appreciate you! Happy Teachers’ Appreciation Week!”
—Jobelle Tabuena, DanDan
“The influence of a great teacher can never be erased. They work hard to educate us and to help us become better individuals. They are our cheerleaders who want nothing more than to see us succeed. It is unfortunate that teachers are overlooked, overworked, and underpaid, despite greatly contributing into shaping the future leaders of tomorrow. I think without the amazing teachers that I have had throughout my academic journey, I would not have been the person that I am today. To my incredible teachers, thank you for inspiring me to pursue my dreams and to believe in myself. To students, be kind to your teachers, they only want what is best for you. Teachers are extraordinary human beings and I hope the passion to teach and to spread knowledge will live forever.”
—Kyla Tuazon, San Antonio
“Appreciating your teachers is just as important as learning. Just like students, we tend to forget they have their trials and are human beings like us. Regardless of their age or gender, everyone is going through their own battles. Yet they still do their best to show up every day. A little ‘thank you’ or ‘how are you’ can go a long way. Everyone needs a little love here and there.”
—Raina Avelino, Gualo Rai
