School districts around the area which haven’t ended classes for the 2017-18 school year will be doing so in the next few days.
Teachers who have given their students, our children, and grand children, a year of their time deserve thanks from all of us.
Increasingly, public school teachers I’ve talked with find the job they’re doing harder to do all the time.
Some veteran teachers complain about the new technological systems they’re required to use.
All express annoyance with the rigors of increasing mandatory state testing, they say, is harming their ability to be educators as individuals.
It’s a shame that teachers who spent years learning their craft, leave education to pursue other interests in numbers that seem to be increasing.
The value of a committed teacher, who likes what he or she does, can’t be calculated.
That’s the way I see it.
