Emily Nolan, second-grade teacher at St. Mary School in Milford, is flanked by students as she displays a wreath made of crayons that she received during the school's recent celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week.
The wreath was a gift from student Anya Joseph. From left in photo are Alyssa Zinker, Jackson LaVecchia, Miss Joseph, Miss Nolan, Megan Vella, Emily Rice, Charlotte LaVecchia and Ava Bottino.
The teachers were thanked for not only teaching classes, but for also providing lessons in kindness, fairness, respect, following rules, helping one another, forgiving and listen-ing. (Photo submitted)
