TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County Public Schools is celebrating the work of its 9,628 teachers across the county this week, honoring them not only for their service and talents during the regular school year but especially for their dedication and professionalism during this time of at-home learning caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Teacher Appreciation Week from Monday, May 4, through Friday, May 8, will feature a variety of online and social media recognitions of BCPS teachers, as well as opportunities for the BCPS community to thank educators.
“Teachers are the heart and soul of Baltimore County Public Schools, and Teacher Appreciation Week is a wonderful time to let the teachers in your life – and in your child’s life – know how much we value them,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams. “The job they do every day, and especially the work they are doing now to ensure our children have a solid continuity of learning, is nothing less than heroic.”
As mandated by the state, Baltimore County’s school buildings have been closed since mid-March due to COVID-19. Schools are to remain closed through Friday, May 15.
During this period, BCPS is providing continuity of learning through virtual and print-based learning pathways depending on student access to technology.
