Teacher Appreciation Week may look different this year, but it’s a great opportunity to celebrate the work and role of teachers in the lives of our students.”

“Even in these most trying of times, teachers strive to make a difference in the lives of their students by ensuring our future generations have the knowledge and tools necessary to be successful.” said Congressman Loebsack. “Even though students are not in the classroom, it is important that we show our teachers just how important they are! More than ever, we owe a debt of gratitude to the teachers across Iowa and our nation this Teacher Appreciation Week for all they do for our students”
