American School Celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week

Today is the first day of Teacher Appreciation Week, which is a great opportunity to recognize the more than 100 full-time and part-time instructors who grade our students' exams.  All of them have at least 24 hours of college credit in the subjects they grade, and many of them have advanced degrees.  Even though it's rare that our students and instructors ever meet face-to-face, we do our best to make instruction as personal as possible.  Our instructors call students by name when they grade exams.  They write detailed, constructive feedback on every exam.  Nothing in our print courses is graded by machine, and even most of the examinations in our online courses are graded by an instructor rather than graded automatically by a computer.  We are grateful to have so many dedicated instructors on staff, and we hope our students enjoy the comments they leave as much as our instructors enjoy reading your work and learning about you!
