TRENTON, N.J. – Assemblyman Ryan Peters celebrates the life-changing work of teachers in a YouTube video released today in honor of World Teachers’ Day on October 5.
From New Jersey’s first public school house, the Clara Barton School in Bordentown, Peters thanked teachers for dedicating their lives to a profession that not only educates, but also influences and encourages.
“My family is full of teachers, and every time we get together, I’m reminded of the special type of person it takes to do this job,” said Peters (R-Burlington). “I would like to personally thank all the teachers who have influenced my life, continue to influence the lives of my children, Kaylee, Kevin and Benjamin, and the lives of every child out there. Thank you to all the unsung heroes of the education system.”
