This week—Teacher Appreciation Week—has been special for educators like me, as many of our students, parents and community members have taken the time to recognize the challenging work we do. Although this recognition is wonderful, it’s important that we all acknowledge the many people who contribute to the education of our children. That’s why, to close out this week, I would like to express my appreciation for the countless others who make it possible for my colleagues and I to teach.
All kids CAN succeed.
MinnCAN advocates for the success of every Minnesota student, from pre-K through college and career. We improve policy to help all students thrive and share promising practices and stories to demonstrate that all kids CAN succeed.
Careers in the STEM fields continue to be some of the highest-paying and fastest growing in the nation. Encouraging our kids, especially girls and students of color, to excel in math and science is the first step in ensuring America's innovation and competitiveness in an increasingly high-tech economy.Drew Palmer
I care about public schools in Minnesota because I believe a good education is key for the personal success of our children and the economic vitality of our state.Sarah Morris
We all contribute to a child's education, directly and indirectly. Directly, we must support responsible public policy. Indirectly, we must promote a responsible educational culture. In both cases, we need all hands on deck.Ben Davis
