Teachers are the professionals that help mold the minds of our young people. As challenging as teaching may be, teachers are often times underpaid. Tuesday the Calcasieu Parish School Board took steps that helped correct this problem. Now, it looks like teachers will be ending the year with a smile.
Patricia Clemons has been teaching in the public school system for 29 years, she said, "Teachers are in need of pay. We are underpaid, but we love what we do. With this supplement it encourages us to continue to work hard." Clemons is talking about a one time pay day bonus that the Calcasieu Parish School Board just approved.
