Letter sent to DCPS educators from Chancellor Rhee
Dear DCPS Educator,
This is National Teacher Appreciation week, and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work.
I believe the work that occurs in your classroom each day is some of the hardest and most important work in this country. Your commitment to the success, well being and safety of our students shows. I know your job is not always easy, and sometimes the rewards are not obvious, but know that your work affects many lives, and many futures, every day that you stand in front of your classroom.
Our graduation rates are increasing and our students are achieving at an unprecedented pace. This is absolutely due to your skill and commitment. You are essential to the success of our students, and DCPS cannot improve as a district without you.
On behalf of myself, the staff at the central office, and the people of Washington DC: thank you for all you do for our students every day.
