Grateful for article recognizing teachers

first_imgSome of my daughter’s students, who’d never thought they could pursue higher education, went on to college, thanks to the encouragement that she and her fellow teachers gave to them.Some of those graduated from college and are now successful in their careers. They keep in touch with my daughter and her fellow teachers.I recall when my daughter was 4 years old and would set up her Cabbage Patch kids, classroom style, in her bedroom and would “teach” them. She’d often force her younger brother (also a graduate of Schenectady schools) to sit in her “classroom” as well. Little did I know that one day she’d earn three master’s degrees, stand in front of a classroom and inspire children to learn.Although my daughter’s not teaching now (She’s home with small children.), she’ll always be a teacher. Thank you again, Daily Gazette, for recognizing the special people who teach the children who are our future.Wanda FisherSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicSchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcySchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Schenectady police reform sessions pivot to online Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionWords cannot adequately express my appreciation for the front-page piece you ran on Dec. 17 concerning the dedication of teachers and how much “the little things,” such as a note from a student, means to them.Although I’ve never been a classroom teacher, my daughter, who’s the product of the Schenectady school system, taught middle school for 15 years, most of those in the Boston public schools. The quotes from the teacher you interviewed could have come directly from my own daughter, whose students did not come from families who could purchase Christmas gifts for her. Instead, they wrote notes or drew pictures.last_img read more

Turkey charges 20 Saudis over Khashoggi murder

first_imgTurkey has charged 20 suspects including two former aides to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman over the 2018 murder of Riyadh critic Jamal Khashoggi, prosecutors said on Wednesday.Prosecutors accuse Saudi Arabia’s deputy intelligence chief Ahmed al-Assiri and the royal court’s media czar Saud al-Qahtani of leading the operation and giving orders to a Saudi hit team. Khashoggi, 59, a commentator who wrote for The Washington Post, was killed after he entered the Saudi consulate on October 2, 2018, to obtain paperwork for his wedding to Turkish fiancee Hatice Cengiz. Mutreb, Tubaigy and Balawi had been among 11 on trial in Riyadh, during which sources said many of those accused defended themselves by saying they were carrying out Assiri’s orders, describing him as the operation’s “ringleader”.The Turkish prosecutor said a trial in absentia would be opened against the 20 suspects but did not give a date.The prosecutor had already issued arrest warrants for the suspects, who are not in Turkey.Khashoggi, a Saudi insider-turned-critic, was strangled and his body cut into pieces by a 15-man Saudi squad inside the consulate, according to Turkish officials. His remains have never been found.The CIA, UN special envoy Agnes Callamard and Turkey have directly linked Crown Prince Mohammed to the killing, a charge the kingdom vehemently denies.Topics : Turkey carried out its own investigation into the murder after being unhappy with Saudi explanations.The Istanbul prosecutor’s office said in a statement that Assiri and Qahtani were charged with “instigating the deliberate and monstrous killing, causing torment”.Eighteen other suspects — including intelligence operative Maher Mutreb who frequently travelled with the crown prince on foreign tours, forensic expert Salah al-Tubaigy and Fahad al-Balawi, a member of the Saudi royal guard — were also charged with “deliberately and monstrously killing, causing torment”.They face life in jail if convicted.last_img read more
