October 5, 2017 – World Teachers’ Day
Dear Principal and Staff:
As the City Councillor for Ward 39, Scarborough-Agincourt, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank and celebrate all teachers in our ward today, on World Teachers’ Day.
I am the father of five daughters who all chose to enter the teaching profession and are members of teachers’ unions. I understand and appreciate the dedication and personal sacrifice involved in becoming a teacher and shaping the lives of our students. A child’s life can be changed by a good teacher.
On World Teachers’ Day I call on our community to acknowledge the contributions of the teaching profession in our society. Teachers are educators and caregivers to our children. Teachers have the opportunity to change society through the students they teach every day in our classrooms. I thank them for their public service and hard work.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families.
