I have been on the Lisbon School Board for almost 15 years. During that time the level of responsibility that has been transferred from parents to schools is unprecedented. We as a society now rely on our educators to do much more than teach our children, our expectations are much greater. We require them to be counselors, case workers, and care givers. It's clear to me why we ask so much from our teachers. They are dedicated professionals with the desire to teach. Teachers are some of the best and brightest people in our community of course we would entrust them with our most precious possession.
