School Boards Recognize the Important Role of Our State’s Teachers

LANSING — This week is National Teacher Appreciation Week, and across the state and nation teachers are being recognized for the positive contributions they make in our communities and for the important role they play in shaping the future for our youth. The membership and staff of the Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB) would like to extend our thanks to the teachers of Michigan for making a difference in the lives of children every day.

“Today’s teachers are faced with complex issues that would challenge even the strongest resolve. Yet day after day, Michigan’s teachers dedicate themselves to improving student achievement across our state,” said MASB Executive Director Kathy Hayes. “Strong teachers are vital to our success. We must work together to ensure we have strong schools and we deliver a quality education for every child in Michigan,” she added.

MASB encourages schools, communities and parents to recognize teachers this week for the important work that they do and for their commitment to delivering a quality education to ALL of our state’s children.

The Michigan Association of School Boards provides quality educational leadership services to all Michigan boards of education and advocates for student achievement and public education.
