Teachers deserve their new contract

Letter to the editor

Posted: Wednesday, March 08, 2006

I am writing about the teachers' new approved contract. Teachers and school staff deserve the increase. Without teachers we would not have great lawyers, health-field employers, firefighters, state employers, the general work force and the great government that we have in Juneau and our great country.

Teachers and principals are still working hard to teach our children. They deserve a bonus for the holidays and a summer bonus when they go on vacation. We should also reward our teachers with many other benefits, like the best health care system and the safest schools in the world. People do not realize the job that teachers and other school staff have while they are performing their duties. Let's always remember this and our blessed America, the greatest country in the world.
