Celebration of Life for Jim Letcher

March 13, 2014

On March 6th, the Saline Area Schools Community suffered a tragic loss.  Jim Letcher, a 20 year teacher in Saline and 30+ year teacher overall, passed away.  He will be missed by his family, the students & families that he taught, and the staff of Saline Area Schools.  While it is a cliche’ to say – it’s very true about Jim – there was no one that knew Jim that didn’t consider him a friend.

About Jim…

Jim graduated from Northern Michigan University in Marquette and was a proud Wildcat. He began his career teaching at the Tuscola Intermediate School District in the thumb of Michigan, where he taught severely mentally impaired students.  He returned to the UP for a short period to teach at Palmer Intermediate School District.  For the past twenty years he taught students in Special Education, Kindergarten and Reading Recovery in the Saline Area Schools(Union, Houghton, Harvest, Woodland Meadows and Saline Middle School).  He used his unique charm and clever wit to ingratiate himself with staff and students alike. He was a compassionate leader, negotiator and staunch supporter of public education through his union work in the Saline Education Association, Washtenaw County Education Association and the Michigan Education Association.
