Chris from Cullman
I really think that they need to pay our teachers a little better than what they are doing now. It is for the future of our whole world and our children.

Mrs. Dunn from Susan Moore wrote
Thank you so much for you encouraging and insightful words. Teachers give so much of themselves to their profession. I appreciate your acknowledgement of their value to our society.

Cory from Shelby County
I think the teachers make pretty good myself. They start off about forty thousand a year. If you figure up the hours they work, that's twenty five dollars an hour. And their insurance is outrageous, tehy have to pay two dollars a month for health insurance. Yeah that's awful.
