Celebrating the Heroes of FLVS: Teacher Appreciation Week 2021
Superhuman hearts. Super rare powers. Being able to encourage anyone they talk to. Someone we can count on to save the day. We’re talking about our Florida Virtual School teachers!
Our teachers are the everyday heroes who inspire us to do and be our best. We’re grateful for them every day. But we’re especially thankful this year, and hope they’ve had an amazing Teacher Appreciation Week.
Teachers, thank you for helping us fly to our fullest potential.
Thank you for lifting up students and families with what can only be called superhuman strength. Thank you for putting students first every day of this unprecedented school year. And in the words of the students and families you help every day, thank you for being you.
Here are a few shout-outs for our teachers:
- “Best teachers ever. They really care and are motivational.”
- “My son looked forward to story time with her each week. She was always just a text away whenever we needed help or encouragement.”
- “They put in the time and effort to help students learn and take in the knowledge at hand!”
- “Thank you so much Mrs. Vega. You are such an amazing teacher!”
- “Mrs. Philips was such an amazing teacher. Kindergarten was amazing for my daughter!” Mrs. Edwards in 5th grade Full Time is the best! We love her!”
- “Thank you, Ms. Dora for being an awesome math teacher!”
- “Mrs. Ross is a great teacher!”
- “Mrs. Bell! The best environmental science and agriscience teacher.”
- “We love Mrs. Marroletti!!!! She’s the best!”

As we look towards the end of the 2020-21 school year, we’re reminded not all superheroes wear capes. And we’re honored to have the opportunity to thank every teacher at Florida Virtual School for their superhero strength during a year unlike any other.
