If they weren’t already, there’s no doubt that teachers have earned the title of hero this year, in addition to healthcare workers and first responders. Between juggling virtual classes and safe in-person learning environments, teachers were already doing so much to help our young people gain the knowledge they need to face the real world. With long hours and dedication, teachers are an incredibly integral part of our communities and our nation.
