Letter: Westport teacher parade provided heartwarming moments

To the editor:

What an awesome event the Westport School Parade was! Kudos to all who worked so hard on this.  I have never felt so appreciated as a teacher and been so moved by the outpouring of town support.  I was truly honored to be a participant. 

Thank you to the police Officers, firefighters and school staff who made this happen. 

The signs and banners and heartfelt cheers given by all on the parade route were so heartwarming. This event clearly brought positivity and a much needed boost to all.  I have always been proud to be a Westport teacher, but today was tops!
