“I want to take a moment to honor and congratulate you on your commitment to your students, your school, and to the local community. This is a hard job. Educators are tasked with so many challenges ranging from providing individualized instruction to keeping up with the latest in educational technology. You have faced these obstacles with grace and professionalism. This is the Week of the Teacher but teaching is only part of the job.
You listen and support. You wipe tears and put on Band-Aids. You coach and mentor. You reach into your pockets and make sure students do not go without. You provide encouragement. No wonder students mistakenly call you “mom” or “dad”. May 11th is CTA’S California Day of the Teacher. ADTA will be honoring you with a sandwich lunch on either the 10th, 11th, or 12th. Please see your site rep for details. ADTA appreciates your dedication and looks forward to supporting all of our members now and in the coming years.”
-Steve Tapia, ADTA President
