This week is national Teacher Appreciation Week, and National Teacher Day is celebrated today — May 4, 2021.

We see you, we honor your leadership and public service, and we lift up the lasting impact you have on our students, our state, and our future.
Since the start of the pandemic, EdNC has visited teachers and faculty at 44 school districts and 29 community colleges. Your commitment to our students has made us smile big and cry hard. Lots of love for our teachers today… from the Superintendent, from the Governor, from TEACH NC.

From all of us at EdNC, thank you.
