“She went to work finding as many ways as possible to help make life as normal as possible for our students.”

“During the closure last spring, she worked tirelessly to make sure that students would be able get all they needed to graduate.”

“They have served in ways that are immeasurable to our community.”

These are just a few of the descriptions of education heroes that MASS has received since launching our Education Heroes campaign on Feb. 1

During difficult times, it helps to focus on the positive. With COVID-19 continuing to challenge families, schools and districts like never before, we’re shining a light on the many ways that educational leaders are creatively adapting to ensure student success.

Professionals at all levels — administrators, teachers, staff, principals and so many others — are making extraordinary things happen every day. Thanks to their dedication and perseverance, students have been able to make progress despite many obstacles and uncertainties.

Please help us celebrate their outstanding contributions by nominating a hero today. Follow MASS on Facebook to submit your hero nomination and read about heroic actions taking place in schools and districts throughout our state.

I look forward to hearing about people in your district who are your education heroes!
