Crestview teachers and support staff weigh in on potential pay raise

"It was disappointing at times when we get overlooked," Demara said.

Still, she said, teachers deserve a raise.

"We wouldn't have jobs if it weren't for teachers," Demara said. "It's just nice to know that people would think to recognize us as well, in our help with day-to-day organization."

Holly Tew, a Shoal River Middle School math teacher, agreed.

"It's nice to think that they are wanting to pay us more money for what we do," she said. "It's very stressful making sure you don't leave any child left behind ... in the time you are allowed to (teach)."

"As teachers, we are thankful to have jobs especially in this economy," she said. However, "I certainly think they should include everyone (who) contributes in the educational process at the school level."

Tim Gillis, a reading instructor and head coach of Crestview High School's baseball team, said he agreed with the allocations.
