STATEWIDE — In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, Maine Department of Education Commissioner Pender Makin shared a special message for educators statewide.
Many young kids from schools across the state said a big thank you to Maine teachers and school staff who have shown courage, selflessness and dedication, especially over the past year.
“Teachers have carried the responsibility of caring for, engaging, educating, and inspiring a room full of other humans every day while keeping them safe from COVID-19. On behalf of Governor Mills and the Maine Department of Education, I offer my deepest thanks to Maine teachers during this special week,” Makin said.
