WE DID IT. WE ALL DID IT.
As May winds down, we wanted to thank all of the teachers, parents, administrators and students for another amazing year of educating across Atlanta. One day, when we're finally able to look back on this, we will remember the challenges that the 2019-2020 school year brought. We will remember the graduates who never got to cross the stage and receive their diplomas. We will remember the empty halls. We'll remember having to explain to kids who want to go to school and see their friends that they can't just yet.
We'll also remember the people who rose to meet the moment. The teachers all over the world who adapted to change and worked together on virtual lesson plans. The parents who shouldered the responsibility of helping to educate from home. Above all, we'll remember that even when things got hard, we gave everything we could to help the children. We did not abandon our future.
We're hopeful that next school year will not look like this school year. As we figure out how to educate in the future, it's groups like the Teach On Project that are working to find, fund and nurture the educators working on building tomorrow's classroom. We can't wait to meet our 2020 nominees and work with them on projects designed to make a difference in students' lives.
Here's to another year of giving our all to make a difference.
