Teacher Appreciation Week, May 4-8
05/04/2015 - SCOE applauds Sonoma County’s 3,800+ teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 5-11, with a countywide promotion recognizing local teachers.
A series of teacher appreciation posters on the back of Sonoma County Transit buses are now being displayed throughout Sonoma County. The posters include photographs of 14 educators chosen to represent their colleagues for this promotional campaign. The teachers are from local elementary schools and SCOE special education programs. (Last year’s teacher appreciation week promotion featured middle and high school teachers.)
“We wanted to bring Teacher Appreciation Week out into the community,” explains County Superintendent of Schools Steve Herrington. “I believe it’s important for all of us to let Sonoma County’s teachers know that they are appreciated and valued. They are an essential part of our children’s lives and their work is key to the future of our communities.”
The bus poster project was coordinated by SCOE and supported by community partners, including Abbey, Weitzenberg, Warren & Emery; Exchange Bank, Girard & Edwards; Kaiser Permanente; and Redwood Empire Schools’ Insurance Group (RESIG).
