Celebrating Teacher and Staff Appreciation
Week at Vogel

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is a time to honor and celebrate the incredible work that our entire team does every day. At Vogel, both our teachers and support staff are nothing short of extraordinary. They face unique challenges, yet their unwavering commitment and compassion make a world of difference in the lives of the children they serve.

The Challenges Our Team Faces

Working at Vogel presents challenges that go beyond the typical educational setting. Our children come from backgrounds of homelessness, carrying with them the trauma and instability that such experiences often bring. This environment requires a special kind of educator and support staff—individuals who are not only skilled in their roles but also deeply empathetic and resilient.

Homelessness affects children in numerous ways. It impacts their emotional well-being, social interactions, and academic performance. Our teachers and staff must be adept at recognizing and addressing these issues, often going beyond traditional roles to provide emotional support and stability.

The Extraordinary Qualities of Vogel Teachers and Staff
