Im a parent of a fourth-grader at Sam Vaughn School and have been very happy with the education my child has received. He loves his school and he loves his teachers. I feel the same way.
Teachers at Sam Vaughn School are caring, committed and nurturing. Its been a great experience all around. Yet, its disturbing to find that our teachers have been unable to get an increase in salary for six years.
Meanwhile, I understand the superintendent receives $6,000 each year for a car allowance, one of many perks, while my childs teacher receives only $700 a year for supplies for 32 students. Even my fourth-grader would think thats not fair. Our students deserve better, and so do our teachers.
I urge the school board to see that Ceres teachers are paid the salary they deserve.
