Letter: Legislators need to value our teachers

I was a special ed teacher for 9 years in the public schools in Durham and in Maryland. When I moved here from Maryland because my husband got a job here, I took a big pay cut. North Carolina is number 46 in terms of funding for public schools. We are last in the southeast on per pupil funding. I worked 65 plus hours teaching, grading papers, communicating with parents and writing lesson plans (and most teachers do).
