To all teachers: I want you to know how much you are appreciated, and how essential your contribution is. Students cannot receive an excellent education without you – you are truly educating Georgia’s future, each and every day. I want you to know that I’ve heard your concerns about the profession and will continue to work, in every way I am able, to create an environment that allows you to teach and your students to learn.
To my fellow Georgians: please join me in celebrating our teachers this month. Here are several resources that will help you do just that:
• Graphics to share on social media here, here, here, and here.
• Thank you note template to print and send to a teacher
I also encourage you to share stories of great teachers using the hashtag #thankaGAteacher.
Again, I want to express my sincere gratitude to each and every one of Georgia’s teachers. Please don’t ever doubt that your work makes a difference. You are changing the lives of Georgia’s students, every single day.
