Our kids succeed


OTF thanks Ontario’s educators 

A message from Diane Dewing, OTF President

Education Week gives us the opportunity to highlight the dedication of Ontario’s teachers in publicly funded education. The Ontario Teachers’ Federation thanks the educators in our schools for ensuring that our students receive the highest quality education. Ontario education is acknowledged as one of the best in the world.

The job of teaching is certainly one of the most challenging but, at the same time, the most rewarding. In light of the current climate in Ontario, we thank you for continuing to go beyond the limit in preparing our students to be productive and caring members of our society.
