Dr. Peter A. Pantina, a good friend and former colleague, recently wrote the following to his ELA department members in Hauppauge.  I have always admired his talent with words and asked him if I could share his message with you.  He graciously consented.  In the tough times we all face, I found his words uplifting.

"I just want to let you know that I was one of the thousands who attended theRally for Education at Hofstra yesterday.  The theme of the rally was that education matters and that education on Long Island matters a great deal!  There were several speakers who railed against Albany, but I was impressed that this was less a political rally, and more of an affirmation of the value and dignity of our profession.  Those of us who began decades ago recall the continual struggle to get to where we are today.  From my vantage point—after 44 years in education, I hold teachers and teaching in the highest esteem.  Make no mistake, ours is a noble profession, and no one can take that away."
