To the editor:
Our family, as well as our ministry, would like to extend publicly a sincere thank you to what we believe to be one of Hardin County’s strongest and best-kept assets, the Hardin County E.D. Unit.
This educational unit and its staff deal with students in need of one-on-one, strong reinforcement, reward and consequence-type education. We realize their role in our son’s progress these last two years to be nothing less than a miracle!
The teachers and staff there are to be commended for the heart they show their students and families as they, with the utmost respect, handle each student’s need as that need arises, not allowing the testing of their patience by one student to affect the patience they need to show the next.
As a pastor, a dad and a grandfather, I can see where our entire school system would benefit from adapting the standard of “rewards and consequences” of this program, reinforcing the old way of the teacher is there to teach and the students are there to learn, period! Kind of a “get er’ done” approach.
As a family, we wish to extend a special thanks to Mr. McCullough, who has been able to accomplish so much with our son. We, as well as our son, have developed a respect for him as he has helped us through a very difficult year that required special measures of understanding and effort on his part, as well as adapting to personal issues and physical changes in our son’s terminal illness. This has proven to us “there are God called teachers” and we are happy and fortunate to have known a teacher like Mr. McCullough.
As we move on to a new school to address the physical needs of our son’s disease, he will no doubt take good memories of Mr. McCullough and his fifth grade class. After all, one day, memories will be all we have.
