Our opinion: Recognize the work of teachers

Published 8:06 am Thursday, August 29, 2019

On Tuesday, schools will all be in session.

As students get back into the halls and desks, some people have already been at school for a while now.

Teachers have already been walking the halls, getting classrooms ready, planning out the school year and attending seminars. So it goes without saying that it’s an exciting time for them as well.

These are the people we trust to provide students with the necessary knowledge that will help them succeed in life. Having quality teachers is the backbone of any school district and the amount of work they put in both during the school year as well as during their time off is dedication to their craft and the students they teach.

We feel it’s important to acknowledge the work of educators and we hope that this year, when you are visiting the school or attend an event, that perhaps you’ll take a couple minutes to let them know their work is appreciated.

We wish all the staff at all of our area schools, as well as parents and their children, the very best of school years. Make this the best year you can.
