As we celebrate educators in honour of #teacherappreciationweek, each of you provides us hope for the future of learning beyond the pandemic. 


Teachers are the drivers of innovation in the classroom whose ingenuity and creativity has enabled sustained learning in all forms to help students thrive in the most challenging circumstances. Technology has found its place, especially during the pandemic as a conduit and accelerator to learning.


Hence, a tip of the hat to all the awesome and inspirational teachers who have stepped up to make it happen. You truly matter. Thank You!
