“Despite the challenges of the pandemic, teachers continue to help their students achieve success by providing safe, flexible learning environments. They have found creative and thoughtful ways to support their students during a difficult time for all Alberta families.  

“This World Teachers’ Day, I would like to recognize teachers for the tremendous work they do each and every day. They embody the theme of this year’s event – the heart of education recovery – and continue to work tirelessly to ensure every student receives the best possible education.

“To every teacher in our province – thank you. Your guidance, compassion and dedication has a positive impact on every student and inspires them to reach their full potential, not just today but for a lifetime.

“Please join me in recognizing our teachers for their invaluable role in shaping future generations and the future of our province.”
