Open Letter To CHS Teachers

Facebook Friend Dave Chamberlain posted the following open letter to the teachers of Coeur d'Alene earlier today: “I hereby intrust you to not only teach my daughter the skills of reading, writing and arithmatic, but to show them through your own experiences the reasons WHY teaching and LEARNING are important for the rest of her life. Help me teach her how to deal with people that are ignorant, and bigoted by presenting both sides of history. Please note that I do not give this honor to you without a caution. I will be checking her online status regularly, and I will be watching her progress. But from my experiences of CHS, I am assured she will get the best of education possible in a state that dismisses your impact.”

Question: What do you expect from your child's teachers? What should your child's teachers expect from you?
