What a teacher writes on the blackboard of life can never be erased.
It was appropriate this past week that our own Paula Travis wrote a column about teachers since she herself is still known and loved by people of Newton County who learned under her tutelage as a high school language arts teacher for many years.
If you are reading this editorial it is because a teacher or teachers had the patience to give you the desire and the tools to be able to do so.
There was a time when teachers were placed on the highest pedestal of life having the respect of students and parents alike.
We are sure many of you are remembering that if a teacher took you to task, when you returned home your parents without blinking an eye or sparing the rod did more to you than your teacher.
It takes a special and gifted person to have the patience to teach. Thank you, teachers.
