Thank a teacher
There is an old adage that states: "If you can read this - thank a teacher." Well, after Monday, October 26th, every citizen in the Town of Fairfield should stop and thank a teacher for yet another reason. By ratifying a contract with a zero salary, zero step increase for the year 2010/2011, Fairfield's teachers have demonstrated their selfless commitment to the children of our community. Make no mistake; this outcome required significant sacrifice from our teachers and their families. It will enable the school district to maintain smaller class sizes, programs and services for its students. There should be no question about our teachers' willingness to be part of the solution during these difficult economic times.
