Dorothy Retha Cook's curator insight, January 15, 4:00 AM

They say teachers sre to teach the children but there are those that do theiir part and more to do just that but get TROUBLE instead of the assistance the teacher and the students NEED! WHY is this? We applaud this teacher and all others like her and say Give her an award for her job performance and leave her alone! Dont give her trouble bscause now you may have to provide the same for the betterment of ALL the children in the school she teaches in as if she cared enough to put the education of her students first and she purchased them computers, How much do you care show us what you the top dollar school board members are working with! Where is your money for computers to help ALL the students learn is it not a worthy cause for you it was for the teacher with an heart to teach and see her students leadrn even at cost to her ownself. Now what you gonna do? Good teachers are hatd to find coulld be in part because they knowxthats not what the schools systems want for certain. Class of students and schools and if you do your job and teach their students they get TROUBLE instead of encouragement and the help needed. Now that is a PROBLEM that reveals an educational fact they dontvwant the students educated up but out and some they just decline to let in so there is no failure on their part for failure to educate and the students drop out. Haves dont even want the teachers to do their job an educate the have nots in a way they can learn! LEAVE this TeACHER ALONE and the school need to purchase computers for ALL the students betterment of learning!
