Superintendent's Message, May 4, 2020

  • Dr. Ian Saltzman Dear Friends,

    Teachers are the life blood of education. The hard work and dedication teachers show every day is exemplified even more during this time of distance learning. We appreciate and respect the work you do every day, but this is our week to honor the incredible team of teachers that we are so blessed to have in Everett Public Schools.

    We truly appreciate the meaningful work our teachers do every day, not just during this week where the accomplishments of teachers are celebrated across our district, state and nation.

    I am reminded every single day that our teachers are dedicated to the success of every child. They provide hope to the neediest children in our community. They provide stability in attitude and attention to every detail of a child’s life and they understand the profound influence they have on the lives of kids. Right now, as they only see their students through zoom or by a call or email, they are especially vital in keeping students engaged and supported while learning from home.

    On behalf of the school board and this great community, it is my privilege to extend a heartfelt message of gratitude for the work our teachers do  It is true teaching is a calling, not a profession, and I am so honored our teachers have chosen Everett Public Schools as a place to make a difference in the lives of others.

    I encourage our community and school district to join me in appreciating our teachers this week and in the weeks and years to come.

    Dr. Ian B. Saltzman, Superintendent
