To the Editor:

I am writing in response to your feature story on May 14 about Mitchell High School holding a signing event to recognize aspiring teachers. I worked in the educational system for 25 years and this is the type of news that we need to hear more of.

I commend the Mitchell School administration and board for coordinating and executing this

event. What a supportive gesture this is to show these students that their choice of a career after high school is one that is of great value. Without teachers there would be no other profession as they are the ones that enable all of us to go on and achieve our dreams. There

is good out there in our young adults and encouraging these young people in this way is an affirmation to them and to their dreams!
