Letter to the Editor: Support our teachers

Thursday, August 27, 2015

To the Editor:

I am the proud parent of a second grader at Parkwood Elementary and a fourth grader entering the Hi-Cap Program at Meridian Park.

As a result of a series of moves, Shoreline is the third school district for my family in as many years. 

Our son had a good experience in Mukilteo.

Both our kids had a better one in Edmonds.

Then we got to Parkwood. We've been thrilled with just about everything about the school and the Shoreline district. I wish every student and their family could experience the support and community that exists at Parkwood. 

Parkwood has a lot going for it. The PTA is amazing, and the principal is outstanding. 

But I'm writing about the teachers. I'm not even going to name names, because I have a pretty good sense of how hard those teachers work, all of them, to give my kids and their schoolmates at top notch education. 

So today, I am writing to call on you to listen to the educators of the SEA. I call on you to open the reserves that you have so conscientiously accrued during the lean times of recent years and put that money to work in support of Shoreline teachers, Shoreline students and the Shoreline community as a whole. 

I know that leadership helps to shape the character of a school district, and from what I have seen of the Shoreline School District, you, as a school board care about the education of our children. Please do the right thing.

I stand with Shoreline teachers. Please join me and do the same.

Andrew Viertel
