“Today is World Teachers’ Day – a time to recognize teachers for the incredible work they do for students each day. Their dedication and care for their students has been highlighted for Albertans more than ever this year.

“When COVID-19 led to the cancellation of in-school classes in March, teachers rose to the challenge in creative and thoughtful ways to support their students at home during a difficult time for all Alberta families.

“And now during this school year – a year like no other – their support, compassion and guidance is helping students across the province adjust, learn and succeed as they return to a safe learning environment.

“Please join me in celebrating teachers for their invaluable contributions to our province and Alberta’s youth.”
