Amata Thanks Teachers
Washington, D.C. – Tuesday, Congresswoman Uifa’atali Amata is thanking teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week (May 3-7):
“This week is a great time to let a teacher know they are truly appreciated. Our teachers care about our children, teens, and young people in college or vocational school. Teachers choose to invest their lives in these young people.
“We all tend to look back on a teacher in our lives that inspired us, helped direct us, or improved us in some way. Teachers make a difference, and are important to our community. They spend many hours with our children, and can be a meaningful influence for years after their classes.
“I’m encouraged by federal investment in education last year and ongoing funding efforts this year, as we need to continue providing tools and improvements so our teachers can be at their best for our students.
“Thank you, Teachers, and God bless you!”
