MONTREAL, February 9, 2022 – The Quebec English School Boards Association (QESBA) is pleased on behalf of its Board of Directors and elected and parent commissioners from across Quebec to recognize and thank each of the 8,000 plus dedicated individuals who teach in our classrooms across the province.

It is Teacher Appreciation Week, an important opportunity to recognize those who lead the way in nurturing and safeguarding Quebec’s most precious investment – our students, more particularly over the last two years of this pandemic. Teachers in the English network are models of dedication; our collective 86% success rate is only one example of their tireless work and dedication.

“Education is constantly evolving, and the teachers in our network are essential innovators as they go above and beyond the call, on a daily basis in their classrooms and communities,” said Dan Lamoureux, QESBA President. “We must be honouring and supporting our teachers year-round. Nonetheless, this is a moment for all Quebecers to recognize the importance of these committed individuals,” concluded the President.

QESBA is the voice of English public education in Québec and represents 100,000 students in over 300 elementary, high schools, and adult and vocational centres across Québec.
