Dear Manitoba Teachers,

Where do we begin? The 2020/21 school year has been like no other we’ve ever experienced. 

We heard stories of teachers teaching two groups of students in separate classrooms, making videos, and using all kinds of theatrical tactics to engage students who were learning through cameras for months on end. We also know you had to pivot to deal with changes coming at a constant rate throughout the year. 

And let’s not forget wearing a mask. Every. Single. Day. All day!

We know it wasn’t easy and that sometimes (most times), it was downright hard. But you showed up, and you did it. You did it for the students of our beautiful province, and we can’t thank you enough. 

Your dedication and passion for teaching inspire us every single day. We thank you for including agriculture in your lessons throughout the year. 

We know things like maintaining a classroom garden, attending a virtual farm tour, or trying a new activity or lesson plan can be out of your comfort zone sometimes. And we just want to say that we appreciate every effort you make to bring agriculture to life for your students. 

We struggle to find enough words to say thank you for all you do, this year and always, to educate our future leaders, future co-workers, and future farmers! 

Without you, the work we do and the progress we make would not be possible. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts! 

And, for goodness sake, please have the best summer of your life!! You certainly deserve it!!

Cheers to you!
The staff at Agriculture in the Classroom - Manitoba
