Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day—their immense work and impact moves us beyond words, and with the abrupt end to the physical school year, our teachers have done even more to continue education with virtual classrooms and learning at home lessons.

All to ensure every student has the tools they need to reach their full potential. Never have our nation’s teachers been more appreciated and seen–even as they work with students from a distance.

It’s in these challenging times that we truly recognise and appreciate how our nation’s educators play such a pivotal role in our children’s lives—inspiring a lifelong love of learning and discovery and making a difference in their well-being and long-term success.

Through the Coronavirus pandemic millions of families realised that teachers are not just convenient but essential.

How most teachers are being viewed right now is right up there with health care workers. Now is the time to give the biggest possible shout-out to teachers!
