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

    My entire career was triggered by two high school teachers who mentored, coached and guided me when I needed it and continued to support me in my learning journey.

    In working with teachers here in Alberta, I am constantly inspired at their commitment and dedication.

    Every teacher deserves our full support.
