Good and bad teachers come and go. Good and bad administrators come and go. Various schedules (20-, 60- or 90-minute blocks), staggered class lengths, four-day weeks, five-day weeks, special days off all come and go.
I worked in the Meeker School District for 35 years and dealt with all the above. I adapted my teaching style, followed district and state policies, kept my personal ethics and integrity and managed to educate a few students.
Everyone, and I mean everyone, needs to stop whining and complaining and work together to educate our children.
I am proud to see my former students when I go to various places around town.
The education of our youth should be our primary concern. Egos and power struggles have no place in the educational system.
