Governor’s Weekly Message: Honoring Teachers for Their Role in Shaping Our Children’s Future

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | Kent County | New Castle County | Sussex County | Date Posted: Friday, October 28, 2016



Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell recognizes Delaware’s 2017 Teacher of the Year, Mount Pleasant Elementary’s Wendy Turner, and pays tribute to the many excellent educators across our state who are helping our children learn and prepare for success.

“We know that a major factor in student achievement is an excellent teacher, and we can’t overstate the important role our educators play in shaping our children’s future,” Governor Markell said.  “That’s why we’re supporting them in more ways through professional learning communities in schools, new teacher leadership roles, and compensation for professional development and national certification.  Delaware has many outstanding educators, and this week I was honored to announce that our 2017 Delaware Teacher of the Year is Wendy Turner, a second grade teacher at Mount Pleasant Elementary in the Brandywine School District.  I want to thank Wendy, and all of our educators who work so hard to provide our children with the knowledge and skills and opportunity to meet their full potential in life.  We appreciate all they do to keep Delaware moving forward.”
