February 12 to 16 is Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week

Every day in the Public Schools Branch, students discover who they are and who they can become, and this is thanks to the incredible efforts of our teachers and staff. Teacher and Staff appreciation week is the time of the year where students as well as parents thank teachers and other school staff for their hard work and support.

We join students and parents in thanking our teachers and staff for everything they do each and every day to improve the lives of those entrusted in their care. We truly appreciate all of the time, energy, and care they dedicate to young people and to their profession. They are genuinely committed to helping students learn. They have great empathy and show great patience and understanding. They are sensitive to the obstacles facing the students in their care. For many students, the efforts and kindness of teachers and staff make the school experience more enjoyable and pleasant.

Together, teachers and staff create an atmosphere of well-being. They understand that leadership is found in all aspects of our organization. They encourage life-long learning. They help ensure students and their families feel safe, welcomed, cared for, engaged and included. We know that the commitment of our teachers and staff is key to the success of students.

Thank you to all our teachers and staff for the incredible work they do to create wonderful learning environments for students that inspire self-awareness, confidence, hope, and a sense of belonging. They are inspiring!
