As we celebrate World Teachers' Day on October 5, 2022, the Richmond School District acknowledges the numerous contributions that teachers make to public education. Educators are celebrated around the world on this day to recognize their accomplishments and the contributions they make to ensuring that global education achieves its goal of leaving no one behind.
The theme for World Teachers' Day 2022 is “The transformation of education begins with teachers”. It is clear that the work of teachers not only influences what happens in the classroom but expands to influencing minds across society. In today's world, the importance of this work cannot be underestimated.
On behalf of the senior executive staff and the Richmond Board of Education, I would like to express my gratitude to all teachers who contribute to making the Richmond School District the best place to learn and lead. Today, I want to encourage everyone to take a moment to thank the educators in their lives and to share the stories of how they have positively influenced them.
