While our best athletes are earning medals across the pond, our teachers here at home deserve medals as well. All too often our teachers don’t get the recognition they deserve and should be recognized for the blood, sweat, and tears they put into their work everyday to prepare our children for the real world. So today I want to award all teachers with medals for preparing our future leaders.
On a personal note, I would like to give a medal to all the teachers I had at the Milford Public Schools who prepared me for the life I have today. Each and every teacher I had provided me the knowledge and skills I needed to do the job I have today. However, there is one teacher in particular I would like to give a Gold Medal. For without her support and belief in my abilities I would not be where I am today personally or professionally. So I would like to give my special education teacher JoAnn Walker a Gold Medal.
Thank you Ms. Walker and thanks to all teachers for a job well done. Your country owes you a great deal of gratitude. – Jim Hull
