It was such a pleasure to again visit Theresa Huzel and the fifth-grade classes at Nelda Mundy Elementary School.
Huzel is an outstanding, hard-working teacher; the parents, students and the school district are so fortunate to have her. Though we are bombarded with technology on every front, she enthusiastically promotes a love of reading and library use to her students.
How did I meet Theresa Huzel? I met her several years ago at the soup suppers at the home of Gretchen Shilts, who served on the Fairfield-Suisun school board many years ago. Shilts has long served as a strong advocate for the educational and spiritual needs of students, families and the community. I’m always amazed at the caliber of citizens among us in Fairfield.
