Tuesday, May 6, is National Teacher Day – let’s take time to thank a teacher for making public schools so great!

Few other professionals touch as many people as teachers do. National Teacher Day is a good time to learn about the contributions educators make every day to all of our communities.”

I believe we all have to work together to make our schools even better. That means everyone in the community – parents, business owners, retirees, farmers, churches, working parents, local governments, and yes, students. Public schools are at the heart of all of our communities. When there are problems, we address them. When there are successes, we share them.

Community involvement brings learning to life. This is an opportunity for all of us to reach out to each other and thank a teacher.

Freshwater Education District teachers work in your schools, throughout a 13-member school district area, from pre-school through high school. The district is a multi-district educational cooperative that is committed to advancing the cause of public education in Bertha-Hewitt, Browerville, Eagle Valley, Henning, Long Prairie-Grey Eagle, Menahga, New York Mills, Perham, Pillager, Sebeka, Staples-Motley, Verndale and Wadena-Deer Creek.

Jerry Nesland, Director
