This week students, families, and communities around Connecticut are expressing their gratitude to teachers, and we want to extend our thanks for all that you do. Your dedication to your students makes an impact far greater than you will ever know.
Your patience, caring, creativity, and flexibility make this profession one that we are proud to be a part of. You truly believe in your students, and that knowledge of your belief in them will stay with them, inspiring them for years to come.
We are proud to stand with you in all that you do to meet the diverse needs of your students and their families. Your work is the lifeblood of your community, and you make a difference in your students’ lives every day.
As teachers, you face a myriad of challenges that appreciation alone will not reduce. That’s why our joint advocacy is so vital to improving teaching and learning for all students. Nevertheless, your commitment to your students deserves recognition, and we hope you will hear “thank you” many times this week.
