We know that there are continuing education credits due for re-licensure — how did five years flash by so fast? We know that you did not enter the profession for the money but because of your love and passion for making a difference in the lives of children.
We know you buy supplies with your own money and extend yourself far beyond your job description to help and mentor your students outside of the classroom. We know that you are passionate about the subjects you teach and cannot help but impart that passion. We know you are learning the latest and greatest tech tool to differentiate lessons in your classrooms.
We know that teachers are often scapegoats for unsolvable issues in education, and we know teachers go above and beyond to address the issues head-on.

This week, our nation recognizes and honors you for your tireless efforts on behalf of our students, everywhere from small towns and suburbs, to rural communities and Tribal lands, to big cities. Teachers have one of the most challenging and fulfilling jobs—literally shaping and changing lives.
Especially during Teacher Appreciation Week, we celebrate and thank you for the vital role that you play in supporting students and strengthening the future of our nation. Long hours and hard work go into designing challenging lessons, guiding students through their learning, providing feedback to students, engaging with parents and families, collaborating with colleagues, reflecting on your instruction, staying abreast of research and changes in content and pedagogy, and leading in your schools.

You recognize that every child has a unique set of skills and talents to share with the world and you strive to help each of them engage in real, rigorous, and relevant learning that can set them on a path to realizing their potential. You do whatever it takes to be champions of our students and to prepare them for the incredible opportunities and achievements you know lie ahead—if we can provide them with a world-class education.
Each day in your classrooms, you work to ensure ALL of your students make progress toward their growth and mastery goals. You are helping to empower students with the strong character traits that they will use in their daily decision making. You are inspiring life-long learners, equipping citizens to participate more fully in our democracy, and, most importantly, you are giving students the freedom to choose—making it possible for them to have limitless options for their life paths and careers.
A Thanksgiving Letter to My Students
Teaching is the profession that launches every career. Thank you for sharing with your students your passion for world languages, music, literature, math, science, theater, history, and myriad other subjects. Thank you for empowering our youth and for furthering social justice by never being satisfied until every child has access to an excellent education. You are helping your students to develop an appreciation for a diverse society and a desire to create a more just world. Thank you for doing this vital work without expectation for thanks; but know, too, that you deserve it, and that the Obama administration and I are invested in lifting up and honoring teaching.
