Your Opinion: Appreciation for teachers

Dear Editor:

The week of May 6-10 is National Teacher Appreciation Week. I would like to publicly express my gratitude and appreciation for the wonderful teachers in Jefferson City who have touched my life and the lives of my children. I am indebted to all those who have impacted my career.

The national award that I recently received is a reflection of the outstanding teachers who have been my friends, mentors, and coworkers in both the Jefferson City Diocese, the Jefferson City Public Schools and Lincoln University.

I aspire to be more like them.
