When was the last time the board members or Mr. Klentschy spent time in a classroom? I'm a parent volunteer for both my children. I spend every Tuesday from 8:20 to 10:30 in my son's classroom and every Wednesday from 8:15 to 11:30 in my daughter's classroom. I see how dedicated their teachers are.
For teachers to be treated with such disrespect by the El Centro school board members is absolutely unacceptable.
Teachers today are not just teachers. They are a child's friend and mentor. In many cases a teacher is the only adult who doesn't yell, belittle or hit a child. They may be the only adult to hug, love understand and, most important, listen to a child.
Parents, go see what your children are doing in class and you will see that our teachers can never be paid enough for the time, love and dedication they give to each one of our children.
