Teacher challenges

I wish to respond to John Canning’s letter “Relationship Building Is Key to Fixing Education” (March 3). Many of us teachers have spent evenings, weekends and vacations thinking of ways to make our classes more interesting and challenging for our students. Our competitors are cell phones, tablets and iPads, among other fancy technological apparatus.

Part of summer vacation is often spent preparing for the new school year. We have ill family members. We have lost loved ones. We do not stay at home and grieve. We go to school and work hard for our students. Those of us still teaching and those of us who have retired have done a fine job.
