We all know that teaching is not just a job; it is a vocation. Let’s all take a moment tomorrow to give credit to the educators who have made a difference in our families’ lives.
Then, let’s all recommit to making sure that what teachers have to say about their work is heard and respected. That’s how we’ll reclaim the promise of public education so that all our students can reach their true potential.
