Co-Authored with Renee Patton

As we explore #PublicSectorNoweducation and continuity of learning continue to be top of mind, and we cannot think of either without thinking of teachers. This week, across public sector and around the world, join us as we appreciate teachers. 

No matter who we are or where we come from, we all know what it means to learn – we all know the power of a teacher to transform something as small as a lesson or as large as a life. 

During Teacher Appreciation Week, which runs the full week from May 4 – 8, we want to take time to thank the teachers who have defined our lives. The teachers who are defying the odds by redefining the learning environment. The pioneers who have tackled distance learning with grace and grit – who, with children of their own in the background or pets vying for attention, open their computers every day to open the minds of their students.
