Letter to the Editor: Thank you to all teachers

Recently my wife and I, along with six other retired volunteers, had the pleasure of serving the welcome back chicken dinner, sponsored by Education MN Brainerd, for new and returning educators and their families.

Recently my wife and I, along with six other retired volunteers, had the pleasure of serving the welcome back chicken dinner, sponsored by Education MN Brainerd, for new and returning educators and their families.

It was truly a joy to see and hear the excitement, enthusiasm, energy, passion, caring and hope these educators displayed with the start of a new school year. There also were many students who attended the dinner and demonstrated the same characteristics as the educators.

Students - work hard, do your best, have fun, extend yourselves by getting out of your comfort zone, respect everyone and pay it forward to others less fortunate than you. Doing these simple things will help your year be more successful and meaningful.

Educators, thank you for daily giving of yourselves, leaving a positive impact on our children and making a difference in so many kids' lives. You have chosen to do one of the most difficult jobs one could do - teach.

However, also know the job you do is the most important job in the world. You have the remarkable ability to change and improve so many lives. Thank you for choosing to do that. Those that can, TEACH.
