Thanks to teachers

Thanks to Linda McPhail (Letters, Oct. 6) for encouraging readers to thank teachers. We spent our entire elementary and secondary school years in Richmond. We both received an excellent education and were both inspired to become teachers.

We teach in Southern California, and have not lived in Richmond for 22 years, yet we remember every single teacher we ever had in the Richmond School District. Thanks to all of our teachers who had such a positive influence on our lives.
