If we want to inspire our teachers and be effective in the classroom we must support them by offering them secure financial environment so they will be able to concentrate on teaching our children.
I also think, we as a community, need to encourage forward thinking, innovation, and collaboration and become more engaged with our school system and our community as a whole. After all, it is our school system and our community and the administrators are intended to work for us. Sometimes I think many of us tend to forget or neglect this important factor that is critical to our children’s education, quality of life and our future.
It is my hope by writing it will inspire the School Board and the Superintendent to reconsider their decision and retain Mr. Sides and at least one combined German class.
