Today’s news:

Show teachers in U.S. respect

TimesLedger Newspapers

After celebrating National Teacher Appreciation Week May 7-11, we need to show appreciation for all teachers across the United States.

Teachers work hard under a myriad of conditions, ranging from overcrowded classrooms to dealing with discipline problems, lack of classroom instructional materials and sometimes difficult parents and non-supportive administrators and supervisors.

Also, teachers strive to help each student reach their full potential, and that is not an easy task. Our teachers deserve the highest respect and need to be treated with the professionalism they deserve. They also need to be paid a fair and livable salary.

Let us salute our teachers every day and thank them for all they do for the students in our country.
