LETTER: Teacher gets a special note

To the Editor:
Thank you to our parents/guardians (our first teachers) and all educators — grateful for you.
Thank you to the very kind and generous lady who paid for Sue Cox’s meal at a local restaurant on April 14. One of the waiters handed the receipt to me. On the back of the receipt is a beautiful note, which I treasure:
“Congratulations Teacher of the Year
Thank you so very much for all that you do for the children in your school. I’m in my 40s and stayed in touch with my kindergarten teacher until she passed away five years ago. Teachers do make a difference! Now get back to dinner with the girls and stop correcting the grammar in this note! Kinda funny that this is a red pen! Grateful for you!”
Sue Cox
Broadway School
(Editor’s note: Sue Cox was Broadway Elementary School’s Teacher of the Year.)
