Letter: In Pembroke, dedicated teachers
Dedication. That’s the word that comes to mind when I think of the teachers in Pembroke.
I recently chaperoned my son’s eighth-grade field trip to Washington, D.C., for Three Rivers School.
My daughter had been to D.C. with her class, so I thought I had somewhat of a handle on the trip.
Turns out, I did not have a true appreciation for the trip and what the teachers invest in making it such a success.
Now, having been on the trip, I am in awe. The school staff that chaperoned this trip deserve serious recognition. These dedicated people gave up five days with their families to be with our children and ensure not only their safety but also an amazing educational experience.
The five days of the trip do not include the time they invested in preparing for the trip, maintaining contact with parents throughout the trip and staying up late in the evening ensuring the safety of the children and preparing for the next day.
I hope others will join me in thanking not only these teachers, but all of our teachers who do so much for our children every day.
