AAE Joins Nation in Honoring Teachers
The following statement can be attributed to Gary Beckner, executive director of the Association of American Educators:

“AAE would like to join in the voices that are celebrating our teachers this week. Each and every day, these caring, giving individuals shape young minds and prepare them to become the leaders of the future. We are very grateful for the work that teachers do, and we believe they deserve all the appreciation we can give.

We at AAE believe that as professionals, teachers are worthy of respect and recognition. We are creating a future where teachers are recognized as professionals in control of their own careers and who are paid more for the hard work that they do. As the nation celebrates teachers this week, we hope that everyone recognizes this and gives their teachers the respect they so richly deserve.”
