Things were different in 'my day,' but that was long ago

Sep 11, 2013 - Todd Rossi, Riverton


I can appreciate both letters to the editor on the state of education in Riverton schools. Mrs. Richmond from the high school jumped to defend her colleague, Mrs. Kirkland, although I did not see Mr. Heckart's letter as critical of Mrs. Richmond at all. He was simply pointing out that kids in school often call teachers by their first names or by nicknames.

Unheard of in "my day," but my day was long ago when it comes to high school.

Good commentary by both writers.
