Dear Teachers:

Each year, the first week of February is a time to take a moment to express our gratitude to teachers everywhere for their essential roles and their contributions to society. Through your perseverance, students of all ages have the opportunity to learn. Teaching is a art and, therefore, immeasurable in my opinion. The ability to inspire, motivate and help our students believe in themselves is perhaps never fully recognized by those who do not work in the education field.

As a teacher, I thank all my colleagues for your professionalism and dedication to education. As a union leader, I am proud to represent you, my colleagues, on the local and provincial scenes.

Wishing you a heartfelt teacher appreciation week,

Ray Venables
