Teacher Appreciation Week: A Note from President Henking

“Please join me in reaching out this week to one or more teachers that have shaped your life.”

Dear Shimerians:

As you may know, this is teacher appreciation week. For all of us, this means appreciating our faculty’s commitment to the teaching and learning we all do together. It means more.

We are each a product of teachers who have shaped our lives from periods from before–or after–we joined the Shimer community. Please join me in reaching out this week to one or more teachers that have shaped your life. I am reaching out to a graduate school mentor but also sending a note to the high school from which I graduated more than 40 years ago.

They deserve my thanks!

And, I will be including a link to Shimer. Please do so as well if the folks you thank do not yet know Shimer.

Of course, we are expansive in our understanding of who our teachers are!

Cordially,

Susan E. Henking
