Teacher Appreciation Week 2021

This year Teacher Appreciation Week takes on a whole new meaning.

I’m thinking of my own children’s teachers and the millions of educators across the country who have gone above and beyond this year to support students, and I’m reflecting on the transformative power we’ve seen when educators and families work together to make sure students get the support and opportunities they need to succeed.

Advocates like you across the Network know that educators are a critical partner in crafting policy to reimagine our education system. It’s an honor to work alongside you, keeping the spirit of Teacher Appreciation Week alive all year.
