State Rep. James Gailliard visited Winstead Elementary School on Friday to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week.

Gailliard, D-Nash, met with teachers to thank them for their ongoing commitment to their students and their willingness to ensure equitable education for every child.

“I am appreciative for the work of our principals and educators and am looking forward to providing the necessary support and funding necessary to improve every school in our district,” he said.

Gailliard has pursued his education agenda on behalf of the needs of his district by supporting and sponsoring legislation to improve teacher compensation, school safety, calendar flexibility, additional funding for repairs and renovations in schools and expand funding for textbooks and digital resources for students.
