Teachers inspire and motivate students. They make a positive impact on student’s lives every day.

This week, May 7-11, is National Teacher Appreciation Week. Help us celebrate by sending a word of thanks to your favorite teacher.

These outstanding educators will be honored at a reception next week at the Clackamas Education Service District, along with 12 other teachers from Clackamas County schools.  One teacher from each county will then be selected and entered to win the recognition of 2019 Oregon Teacher of the Year.

We’re grateful these remarkable teachers have chosen to educate children in the OTSD!
