Everyone has a role in public education
As a teacher for over 30 years, I have always looked forward to this time of year. The beginning of a new school year is always exciting with all its many firsts: the first day of school, riding the bus, participating in a school sport, learning a musical instrument to name just a few.
For students, school is a time full of once in a lifetime experiences. It is the culmination of these experiences, which enrich their adult lives and ultimately benefit society.
