Teachers, Nurses Recognized During Teacher Appreciation Week

The U.S. Secretary of Education marked this week, Teacher Appreciation Week, as a moment to say ‘thank you.’ Arne Duncan said…


“Teachers are central to every single community in America. Each day, teachers come to school ready to tackle a job that is critically important, extraordinarily complex, often joyful, and, at times, heartbreaking.”


Locally, Superintendent Dr. Steve Atwater noted his appreciation for all District staff, also acknowledging the work of school nurses. He reported that District nurses were chosen to develop a streamlined standard and procedure for Alaska’s school districts to follow with regard to collecting body mass index (BMI) data, and thanked Ms. Naomi Walsworth and the District nurses for continuing to be leaders in Alaska.
