Happy Teacher Appreciation Week. I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of the teachers in the Downingtown Area School District who work tirelessly every day to teach, to nurture, and to inspire our students.
In particular, I’d like to say thank you to all of the teachers who’ve been favorites of two of my own sons, including Cindy Cline, Kaity Midiri, Gloria Burgos, Liz Single, Mary Kate McGowan, Holly Chalfont and Marissa Marx.
The other day I ran into Marissa Marx at Wawa before school and she was her usual, smiling self. Later on that day I asked my son Christian, “Is Mrs. Marx always so happy?”
“Yes, Mommy, I think she really loves teaching!”
Thank you to all the men and women who love teaching and who do such a good job at it!
