‘Paying particular attention to a teacher’

By State Senator Anthony Hensley
Kansas Senate Minority Leader, District 19

022414-hensley_anthonyWhen Governor Sam Brownback delivered his 2013 State of the State message to a joint session of the Legislature he said, “And of all those you could learn from, may I suggest paying particular attention to a teacher?”

Those kind comments were directed at me, a public school teacher going on 40 years, and the Senate Democratic Leader. The Governor went on to introduce me to the joint session as the longest serving legislator in Kansas history.

I hope the Governor will take his own advice here as well.  He should pay particular attention to a teacher who voted against the school bill recently approved by the 2014 Legislature, as hundreds of other teachers spent the weekend camped out in the state Capitol in protest of the bill.
