Teachers weigh in



March 9, 2010 - 12:00 AM

Prior to discussions about possible 2010-11 budget cuts for USD 257, Daryl Sigg, a third-grade teacher at Jefferson Elementary School, told board members of the importance of education in the elementaries.

“Please consider carefully any cuts at the elementary level,” she said. “Early experiences shape the way a child’s brain develops.”

Elementary school is the prime time for all learning, she said, as well as social and physical development. She invited board members to sit in on her class to understand better what she meant.
