Supt. Torlakson Joins Association in Honoring Educators' Achievements on "Our Day"
Happy Day of the
Teacher to you and thank you for all that you do for our students, our state,
and our Association!
Today, Supt. of
Public Instruction Tom Torlakson joined Guy
Moore, President of the Mt. Diablo Education Association, students and
administrators at an event in Concord celebrating the 32nd
anniversary of the day set aside to honor our dedicated teachers.
For 2014, the
theme of the Day of the Teacher celebration is “California Teachers: inspiring
our students; strengthening our communities.”
In his remarks,
the superintendent highlighted the positive
impact that teachers have on our students and our community.
The Concord event was only one of many honoring the day.
celebration will continue through tomorrow.
On Thursday, the
legislature will honor teachers by presenting a proclamation to CTA.
For a look at all the
activities today go to our
