Teacher Appreciation Week

Washington, D.C., May 5, 2020

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week, and it’s impossible to find a suitable picture for this post. There are plenty of stock photos and canned graphics, but none of those seem genuine or suitable right now.

When COVID-19 hit, all the sudden “Zoom” changed from a verb to a noun. Their classrooms: frozen in time like this photo. Their students: sent home for the rest of the academic year. And their lesson plans: completely upended.

Yet they took it in stride and somehow adapted. Not only that, but our news has been filled with amazing stories about teachers going the extra mile for their students; delivering meals, drive-by birthday celebrations, virtual tutoring sessions, volunteering, etc. There’s just something indescribable about the hearts of those who educate our children.

This Friday, I’ll be co-sponsoring a formal resolution in the House of Representatives honoring our teachers and recognizing National Teacher Appreciation Week.

Teachers, thank you all. Every single one of you.
