Letter from the Secretary

I recently had the opportunity to visit with the candidates for 2016 State Teacher of the Year, and at the ASBSD/SASD Joint Convention, I got to touch base with a number of school administrators from across the state. These conversations have me energized for the new school year.

In that spirit, I would like to make you aware of a new publication developed by the Department of Education, entitled “Celebrating South Dakota Teachers.” This magazine highlights some of the great things teachers across the state are doing. Our goal with this publication is to elevate and raise awareness about the importance of the teaching profession and to highlight the positive things happening in South Dakota classrooms.

The magazine features many of our award-winning teachers and will be shared with teacher preparation candidates at our public universities. We will also be sharing it with legislators and educators. Public school districts will receive copies for each of their buildings.

Click here to access the electronic version of “Celebrating South Dakota Teachers.”

There is much to celebrate in South Dakota public education. Thank you for all you do for students. Have a great school year!
