CSB Chairman Salutes Teachers

Speaking for himself, new Coeur d'Alene School Board Chairman Tom Hearn made the following statement to re-launch negotiations with the Coeur d'Alene Education Association this morning:

First I want to thank the teachers for the tremendous work that you do and for your loyalty to the children and to the Coeur d’Alene community. You are a gift to our community and we wouldn’t have the high quality education in the Coeur d’Alene School District that we have without the daily hard work and dedication of the teachers and staff. I have never met a teacher, who went into the teaching business for the money,….but of course it is also their job and they expect to be paid fairly and treated with respect. More here.

Question: Do you notice any difference between the approach to teachers taken by the new School Board and the old one? Or izzit just me?
