    These awards to our much underpaid and appreciated teachers are wonderful token of appreciation.However,why are they limited only to Charlottesville and Albemarle?There are many teachers living in this area who do a magnificent job of teaching in other areas of Metropolitan Charlottesville such as the fast developing Greene County.These teachers are virtually unrewarded for their efforts.Can something of a similar nature not be done for them.
