Needless to say, 2020 provided us all with an even greater appreciation for the selfless dedication that our area educators demonstrate on an every day basis. Their commitment to the growth and successes of our children has never been more evident, as they work each day in a variety of ever-changing circumstances to remain true to their profession.
Each week Welcome To Sanford has had the honor of spotlighting an individual area teacher. In truth, for each educator we recognize, there are dozens of others that are deserving of similar accolades. Over this holiday season, and as we enter an other unpredictable year, we urge to continue to share your gratitude with our educators every chance you get.
