Teacher pay

We need more teacher appreciation as these individuals have a big responsibility for all of our futures young and old. I recently read an article in a local magazine where three local businesses are doing appreciation lunches for all of the educators. They referred to it as the XI Commandment, "Honor Thy Educator!"

What a great honor to educators and a demonstration of living in a great community.
