Elizabeth Mott, a Logan High teacher who was laid off recently amid budget cuts there, thanked students and community members today in a letter to the The Herald Journal for their support. Students rallied at a local school board meeting recently to protest the firing of Mott, a popular AP Calculus teacher. Mott was one of five middle- and high-school teachers laid off after the Logan District, in consultation with the Logan Education Association, cut part-time teachers before full-time ones, and Mott worked half-time.

In her letter, Mott thanked her supporters and said: "To see the care and concern that all of you have for the students of Logan High and for their quality of education is awe inspiring. It gives me peace to know that people do care about quality education in all content areas in our schools. Thank you for standing up and doing something about it."
