" Berkeley County's Teacher of the Year for 2006-07 feels just as comfortable with a sandwich in hand while sitting down on the floor of her brightly decorated kindergarten classroom at Hedgesville Elementary School, preparing for the next round of student activities. She's "a bubble on a hot griddle," said Patty Dunham, Welsh's aide for many years. "She's very deserving (of the recognition) because she cares very much for all students," Dunham said.

Letters to the editor Teacher applicants are out there To the editor: Ah, what a way to start my day... a warm piece of toast, a cold glass of orange juice, and a big slap in the face. And, if you are also a applicant for a teaching position at Washington County's Board of Education, you felt it too if you read The Morning Herald's front page headline on Nov. 5, proclaiming a desperate need for new teacher applicants in our county's schools. Apparently the 1,461 applicants they received this year alone, not to mention the many from years past, just weren't enough to choose from for those 74 positions they needed to fill for this school year.

BOONSBORO - When Kelechi Urama moved to Boonsboro from Silver Spring, Md., she was disappointed to discover that her new high school didn't do much to recognize February as Black History month. "Even though there's not a lot of African-American students, it's something that should still be recognized," she said. Kelechi, 15, started collecting information about black achievers, and last February some of the information she collected was read to students each morning. She's collecting information again this month to celebrate black history.

My family had rented a house in the Outer Banks (N.C.) for vacation. It was my sister-in-law's birthday and we had plans to rent a boat and go out for the day. Several of us were in the kitchen fixing something to eat when my brother came running up the stairs and told us to turn the television on. We watched in horror as they showed the footage from the Twin Towers. We sat there for a few hours in disbelief as we saw what was happening in NYC. Almost everything around was closed down that day. We weren't permitted to go out on the boat.
