MREA shares this video letter to Greater Minnesota teachers to recognize and celebrate all that they have done in the past year. It’s immeasurable.  (The text of the letter is also below.)


Dear Greater Minnesota Teachers,

We miss you! We are grateful for the work you do every day to help educate our children — both academically and emotionally.

You’ve shown resilience and strength in this uncertain time and found new ways to overcome obstacles and reach your students.

We’ve always known you were special. But over the last several weeks, you’ve shown us just how amazing you truly are.

Thank you for loving our children and the endless hard work you put into giving them the very best of yourselves.

We have seen you go to great lengths to reach every student. Your tenacity and care inspire us.

In the hard moments, know we are here cheering you on.

You are making a difference. You will persevere. It’s who you are.

From all of us, to all of you. Thank you.

We look forward to coming together again in person.

From the Parents of Your Students
