The Ohio Department of Education congratulates these professionals on choosing such an important career. The hard work they do to educate our children ensures that successive generations of Ohioans can live prosperous and satisfying lives, and it generates capable leaders who can help keep our state and our nation strong. Happy National PTA Teacher Appreciation Week, Ohio teachers!
