Carstarphen didn’t do it alone
Re: July 11 editorial “A course with progress, promise in its wake.”
I took issue with the editorial. It appears to give all the credit for the district’s progress to Superintendent Meria Carstarphen.
Teachers, administrators and staff deserve the credit for the district’s progress this year. If not for the hard work of these fine people that I work with, the district would be in even worse shape than it was a year ago. Students learn because of their teachers and sometimes in spite of their teachers. But credit must be given to these folks who dedicate hours and hours to teaching students, some of whom have no interest in learning.
The staff at my school dedicates itself to the craft and truly deserve the credit for the progress of the students. Yet it receives no bonus for the hard work.
Please give credit where credit is due. The superintendent couldn’t possibly do this all on her own. sHelley natHan
