More than any other profession, teachers shape our communities, just as they prepare our students for the future. That’s why the theme for this year’s 32nd annual Day of the Teacher is California Teachers: Inspiring our Students, Strengthening our Communities.
California’s teachers are in a leadership position both in our schools and communities and as we take on a stronger role in implementing the Local Control Funding Formula and Common Core State Standards, we must capture that momentum.
We highlight that leadership role in our new TV ad launching today. The ad features real teachers who urge members of our communities to “Ask a Teacher” when they have questions about their local schools and about education in California.
In addition, take a look at our Day of the Teacher video featuring CTA Vice President Eric Heins, Secretary-Treasurer Mikki Cichocki and me discussing the importance of California’s teachers and asking our communities to say thank you.
I’d like to be the first to join them in thanking you for the work you do in your schools each and every day. You inspire your students and you inspire me!
Have a great Day of the Teacher!
