Say Thanks to a Teacher During Teacher Appreciation Week
May 5-11 is Teacher Appreciation Week. Winona Area Public Schools is blessed with a cadre of wonderful teachers guiding our students.
About 305 teachers instruct the 4400 students in pre-K-grade12 classrooms. Our faculty are high caliber people with years of experience, training, energy, and innovation. Half of our teachers have 15-30+ years of experience. About 80% of our teachers have Masters level and plus credentials. Our student achievement is linked to this teacher quality.
This week, and always, take a moment to thank a teacher. They are building the future today in our classrooms.
