We are fortunate to have outstanding teachers like you in schools across our district, and are exceptionally proud of your dedication, passion and leadership in helping our students reach their highest personal potential.

Your efforts confirm what I have always believed – that Lee County is a world class school system, home to the most talented teachers in Florida.

On behalf of all of us at the district office, thank you.
