Over the past year, we have faced enormous challenges within the global education community. As the world has grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic, learners, educators and administrators have also become obligated to adjust and adapt their educational processes. As we reset our mindsets to face new challenges created from an altered path forward, we know this is only possible through the hard work, persistence and passion of educators like you.
Your commitment to ensuring academic continuity has enabled students to continue developing and learning new skills while maintaining a quality educational experience. While facing obstacle after obstacle, you have strengthened your pedagogical practices, creating new and innovative ways for teaching.
You have prioritized the needs of your students, cultivating tools and methodologies to keep them engaged as the landscape of education changed swiftly. Your openness to digital technologies has provided a stable path forward for countless students when they needed your guidance and knowledge the most. The success of your students is a reflection of your resiliency during a time of unprecedented change which continues to face us each new day.
We want to recognize you, the education community, for your extraordinary hard work while serving as a foundational pillar for a prosperous and successful future. Thank you for all that you’ve done and continue to do. Let’s continue to build upon this work to ensure education and lifelong learning remain an imperative part of a more inclusive, safe and sustainable society.
