Va. Dept. of Education official visits high school in Danville
DANVILLE, Va. (WSET) -- It's Teacher Appreciation Week, more specifically Tuesday is National Teachers Day and George Washington High School in Danville is celebrating.
They had Dr. Steven Constantino come visit the teachers for a meeting and lunch.
Constantino is the Chief Academic Officer from the Virginia Department of Education.
Tuesday was his first trip to the southside.
He says the main purpose was to just say thank you and listen to their concerns.
"There's always a concern about preparing kids to be successful with the standing of learning tests, so a lot of the comments and questions that I always get are what kind of resources and what kinds of things can the state do to help support school systems," Dr. Constantino said.
He says he will take their ideas and bring them back to Richmond.
