Last week, noting the “change of the season” from the doldrums of summer to the refreshing air of fall, we sought to publicly honor and thank those professionals in our community who do so much for all of us: our educators. They don’t just teach children; they make better all of our lives.
Picking up from last week, your writer continues with a heartfelt statement of pride in and gratitude for all our teachers who are so deeply dedicated in all quadrants and levels, together with thanks to all those working with them.

With the coldest part of winter behind us, the trees will soon be growing and before we know it spring will be right around the corner.
