I wanted to take a moment to thank the teachers in the Worthington school district for their dedication to the success of the students they teach and the willingness to step to the plate in these difficult times by voluntarily freezing their wages for the next three years.

In particular, I want to commend my wife, Kim, who teaches at Colonial Hills Elementary School, for always putting the kids first with a loving compassion for their intellectual as well as social growth.

We are the envy of school districts around the state because to the teachers we have in our district. Teachers, you should be proud of yourselves.
