Rep. Miller on Teacher Appreciation Week


Washington, May 10, 2013 -

As Teacher Appreciation Week comes to a close, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the men and women of the 31st District who have devoted their careers to educating our youth.

individuals here in the 31st District who devoted their careers to educating our youth. Teachers play a critical role in a child’s education and development. They know that today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders and work tirelessly to prepare their students for future success in and out of the classroom.

The future of our nation is dependent upon a workforce that is prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st Century economy. That is why improving our nation’s education system remains one of my top legislative priorities. While I continue to believe that we must hold those entrusted with educating our nation’s students accountable, we must also ensure that teachers have the freedom and the support they need to innovate and succeed. As such, I will continue to promote policies that will ensure our nation’s schools have flexibility to meet the needs of their students and support those who have made a commitment to educating future generations.
