There have been recent reports in The Bee about teachers molesting students. Clearly such events are horrific and warrant coverage. What seems to receive less coverage are the many occasions for celebration related to Modesto City Schools. One such moment occured last Sunday when Johansen High School French teacher Deborah Sessa capped 37 years of dedicated service by being selected California Teacher of the Year from among all teachers in the state. Surely this will be celebrated as a moment of pride for Modesto’s educational program! Congratulations Deborah.
