Expressing gratitude is known to be associated with greater happiness, and what better way to spread the joy than during Colorado Teacher Appreciation Week, May 7-11. This week, which is also National Teacher Appreciation Week, is designated as a special time to honor the men and women who lend their passion and skills to educating children.
"Again and again we confirm that the most important factor of student learning is the teacher in the classroom," said Colorado Education Commissioner Katy Anthes. "Teachers are an essential part of our state's education system. This week and every day we celebrate and thank teachers for all of their tremendous work and dedication in the classroom."
During a preliminary hearing in Delta District Court on Tuesday, Jan. 15, Judge Steven Schultz found probable cause for second degree murder charges against Heather Jones.
Jones previously faced three counts in the shooting of Ryan Redifer in Paonia on Jan. 12, 2018 -- assault in the first degree, assault in the second degree and violation of a protection order.
