Teachers find Gansler ad offensive [Letter]

I was a Baltimore City school teacher for 34 years and have worked for the past 10 years as a Title I tutor in non-public schools. I too am sickened by Mr. Gansler's campaign ad blaming teachers for failing schools ("Dear Mr. Gansler," May 20).

His comments show a total disregard for dedicated teachers in Maryland schools. We too want the best for our students. That is why we spend hours each night planning activities that will engage our children.

Mr. Gansler, we do consider them our children. Even now with 44 years experience, I still give every child my best each day. I am not a person who actively campaigns for one candidate over another, but this year I will make an exception!

Mary Smith
