Teacher Appreciation Week

Thank you, educators!

As we enter this year’s Teacher Appreciation Week, we want to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to all of our NEREC/REC#4 member teachers, substitute teachers, teacher assistants, and all those who work with and volunteer to support teachers as collaborative effective team members towards one goal: 

Meeting the educational and social-emotional needs of all NMs students by supporting and building up all NM teachers.

Because teaching actualities have undergone tremendous change and continue to do so, we salute all teachers who have persevered and continue to deliver and strive toward quality classroom instruction for all students. 

You are most certainly appreciated, to say the least, so good luck with these remaining days of this school year, and enjoy your short time off.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
