There are people in
our lives that make an
impact on us.
A lot of those just
happen to be teachers.
Here is a chance to say
Please tell us who you are.
Schools were closed, then opened, then closed and opened again. Kids were sent home to quarantine and Zoom classrooms became all the norm. Teachers did as best they could. Parents, caught off guard, put in that extra effort to support their children’s learning. Often it was an overwhelming experience. But parents and teachers came to see each other in a new light.

Now with schools open and teachers back in class, it's time to reflect on what we've all been through and how we've depended on each other. And now, on World Teachers Day, let's throw teachers a well-deserved 'thank you.'
"On behalf of Alberta's teachers, thank you, parents for all you have done over the last 18 months to help support learning to continue."
– Jason Schilling, ATA President

    Thank you to all teachers for everything you do every day (including vacation days) to ensure the needs of children are met in engaging lessons.
    A special “thank you” is sent to Mr. Eisenbraun who was my English teacher. He inspired me to impart the beauty of the written word to my students. His presence in the classroom was also captivating; students would hang on his every word and he relished the opportunity to assist any student wanting to improve his/her writing. I hope every student has the good fortune to have a “Mr. Eisenbraun” in his/her school experience!

    Alberta Teachers’ are the most caring, understanding and resilient of workers in the province. Everyone believes they are experts in the field of education just because they went to school. It would be nice if these individuals actually learned something about educating before making statements they know nothing about. Keep up the fantastic work teachers’ you are too important to be side lined. Thank you. Thank you for the work that you do!!!!

    Thank you for loving my kids, working hard to keep them safe, and trying to teach amidst the many obstacles. Teaching while your own safety is at risk, and going the extra mile while not properly being funded.
    In our next election, I will choose to vote for a government that cares and supports all the important work you do!!!

    Thanks for all you do for your students to enrich their lives. I know that teaching is a demanding job and the hours required go far beyond the classroom setting. You can change people’s lives and make our communities a better place to live

    This has been the most challenging two years in my career as a teacher. Thank you to all of the teachers out there that stayed positive and came together to help each other.
    Thank you for all you do!!

    As a long retired teacher I stand in awe of my still working colleagues who continue to do wonderful work with students under the present challenging circumstnaces while not being well supported by the present government and facing possibly having to teach an inappropriate curriculum that in places is quite bizarre. I hope you are able to cope with the many challenges over the next school year.
  • - 2021-10-05 18:16:43 -0600
    Thank you so much for making learning fun. I love school because my Teachers are awesome!!
  • - 2021-10-05 18:15:05 -0600
    I can’t thank you enough for all that you are doing today. I think I had it much easier when I started in 1977.

    As a former teacher, I know how hard teachers work on a regular basis. I can only imagine how much harder it has been over the last year and a half. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the teachers in Alberta for a job well done during these unprecedented times. You are acknowledged and appreciated❤️

    To my favourite teacher, Amin Malak, I think of you almost every day and am so grateful to have spent two semesters in your class. Blessings.
