Kudos – Thanks, teachers

I pulled out my Hennessey fourth-grade class picture from 1980 and there’s a picture of Nevada County’s Teacher of the Year for 2004, Mrs. Wilson. Only the hairstyle has changed on my former teacher, but I am sure she brings the same warmth and enthusiasm to the classroom as she did 24 years ago. Nevada County public schools are full of fabulous teachers who, like Joyce Wilson, have been truly engaged in young student’s lives for years. Nevada County is full of former students who, like myself, are truly grateful to them all. Thank you.
