Schools across north Iowa are recognizing American Education Week through Friday.
Charles City Schools Teachers Association Chair Jenisha Garden says the week is about more than just teachers.
New Hampton Middle School Band Director Jenny Adam agrees it takes a team effort.
Adam says New Hampton will recognize school board members on Monday, administrators Tuesday, support staff on Wednesday, teachers Thursday and substitute teachers on Friday.
Garden adds that National Education Association observances also include Family Day on Tuesday and Educator for a Day on Thursday to give people from the community different school experiences for a day.
