PRSD thanks substitute teachers

PRSD thanks substitute teachers

March 8 – 13, 2021 is Substitute Teacher Appreciation Week and Peace River School Division (PRSD) would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the wonderful substitute teachers in our division for their valuable service to students, staff, schools and the division. While Substitute Teacher Appreciation Week is an excellent opportunity to thank substitute teachers for their contributions, PRSD appreciates their outstanding service and dedication year-round.

“Substitute teachers play a very important role in our school division and in education as a whole” says Darren Kuester, PRSD Board Chair. “We value the high quality of education and support that substitute teachers provide to our students, staff and schools and we appreciate very much that they are dedicated, caring, flexible and accommodating to the diverse needs and demands that they encounter. Their contribution to PRSD is truly immeasurable.”

Substitute teachers not only fulfill teaching duties while teachers are unable to be in the classroom, duties also often include planning, parent meetings, supervision duties and grading for teachers that are absent for long periods, and in many cases with short notice.

Substitute Teachers' Appreciation Week provides an opportunity to recognize the valuable service that substitute teachers provide. Substitute teachers play an essential role in maintaining the continuity and excellence of the learning process.

Thank you, substitute teachers, for all that you do!
