LETTER: Teachers need support on SD61 school board

Peg Orcherton seems to express concern that the new board will consider teacher’s needs rather than those of our students

Peg Orcherton seems to express concern that the new board will consider teacher’s needs rather than those of our students.

Perhaps this is why the Board “shake-up” actually occurred as the old Board seemed to have insulated themselves from taking teachers’ concerns into account.

For the record, teachers’ concerns are the learning conditions of our students.Hopefully the new trustees will have the fortitude to meet with individual teachers periodically, maybe stopping by on a Pro-D day for a conversation and an opportunity to see just how devoted teachers are to their students.
