To the Editor:
Tuesday was National Teacher Day, a part of National Teacher Appreciation Week.
Thank you to all of the dedicated McHenry County educators who work passionately with children from all backgrounds in order to challenge them and help them learn and grow.
I am especially thankful for the 440 men and women serving as teachers, counselors, librarians, nurses, psychologists, and social workers in District 155. As the Class of 2013 approaches graduation, it is extremely prepared for the next step in its unique life journey.
While attacks on public education seem to come from all angles in today’s political climate, these educators are able to see the very real success our students achieve.
For each student, the next step will be different, but they will forever be united in a common bond that they received a top-notch education because the community supports our mission and the educators who guide students on the path to their personal aspirations.
Please join me in thanking a teacher.
