I’m energized for the new school year. Many South Dakota schools are back in session, and others soon will be.
We are asking folks to share their back to school photos with the hashtag #SDBackToSchool. You can find us on Twitter @sddoe. I hope you’ll join in the fun!
I would also like to make you aware of a new publication developed by the Department of Education, entitled “Celebrating South Dakota Teachers.” This magazine highlights some of the great things teachers are doing across our state. Our goal with this publication is to elevate and raise awareness about the importance of the teaching profession and to highlight the positive things happening in South Dakota classrooms. The magazine features many of our state’s award-winning teachers.
An electronic version of "Celebrating South Dakota Teachers" is also available.
There is much to celebrate in South Dakota public education.
Have a great school year!
