Congrats on completing a school year like no other

You. Are. Awesome.

Your first year of teaching has been memorable–in ways no one expected. It’sĀ one that you’ll be talking about for years to come, as COVID-19 forced districts to abandon the in-person lessons and switch to a virtual environment.

It sent most of us scrambling to move hands-on activities online, and we didn’t have much time to make that transition. We watched athletic events, proms. and all sorts of other activities canceled for the health of our students.

It was a challenging time, but you did it! You are finishing the year strong–EdCat strong–and you AND your students will be better because of it. You’ve proven to your students that they matter, and you’ll do whatever it takes to help them succeed.

We can’t tell you enough how proud we are of how you’ve handled this one-of-a-kind school year. And we’re so excited your students and the community can count on you during these unusual times.

Thanks for being exceptional EdCats!
