Celebrating Our Substitute Teachers

Dear Families, Colleagues, Partners, and Friends,

Friday, November 19, is Substitute Educators Day. Our substitute teachers play such an important and indispensable role in our schools, and I would like to recognize their contributions to the teaching and learning of all our students.

As the National Education Association states, substitute teachers serve as “educational bridges” when regular classroom teachers are not present. They support our mission to provide students both the learning and support they need to succeed in school and in life. Their presence in our classrooms is especially valued during this period of academic and social-emotional recovery. 

Please join me in thanking and celebrating our substitute teachers today and every day.


In gratitude,

Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriguez
