Letter: Retired teachers continue to give back

If you can read this letter, you should thank a teacher. The week of November 7-13, 2021 is California Retired Teachers Week, and we all owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to those teachers who not only taught us but also shaped us in our youth.

Each year here in Butte County, retired teachers of Division 32, California Retired Teachers Association, award three scholarships to Chico State students studying to become teachers. Division 32 will also be awarding $100 grants to 45 classroom teachers. Applications for these grants will be coming by email to all the schools.

Retired teachers will continue to give back, both economically and through our volunteer services. We cared about our students and our communities while we worked as educators and that caring doesn’t stop at retirement.
