Guest Teachers’ Appreciation Week

In honor of Substitute Teachers’ Appreciation Week, I write to thank the “guest teachers” who work in various classrooms across Foothills School Division.


Thank you for helping our students stay focused and engaged as learners.  Thank you for being creative and thinking on your feet when you needed to.  Thank you for answering the call, often in the early hours of the morning.  Thank you for making it possible for others to rest at home in cases of illness or participate in professional development outside the walls of their classrooms.


Guest teachers are essential in maintaining quality education for our children.  Thank you to our guest teachers who accept the challenge.



John Bailey
