“We are blessed and fortunate to have such talented and dedicated teachers whose hard work supports our 64,000 students on their academic journeys,” said WCSD Board President Katy Simon Holland. “We are grateful to all of our teachers because they are truly making a difference in our world, and we thank them for devoting their professional lives to our students and their families.”

“Every day, some 4,100 educators share their time and talents with our students, encouraging them along that path to graduation,” said Superintendent Traci Davis. “As a former teacher myself, I know how hard our teachers work and how many hours they devote to their educational mission. They not only teach our students what they need to know, they teach them to love learning, and that is a gift that will last a lifetime. We celebrate our teachers every day, and I am grateful for their important contributions to our children and our community.”

National Teacher Appreciation Week was started in 1985, after Former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt asked Congress to establish a National Teacher Day in 1953.
