Virtually everyone has had their lives influenced by teachers and educators, and the Idaho Education Association wants to recognize those past contributions as well as encourage a culture that enables those critical touch points for current and future generations. May 6-10 is National Teacher Appreciation Week, and Tuesday, May 7 celebrates National Teacher Day. This would be an ideal time to remember the educators who have positively impacted your life and/or who play such a pivotal role in molding the personalities and learning habits of your children. Whether it is a “thank you” note or e-mail to an educator who made a difference in your life or financial support for classroom essentials, please take a moment to acknowledge the contributions of these dedicated people/Sean Rietze, Idaho Education Association.

Question: How did we get to the place where teachers in Idaho became so disrespected? Or are they?
