Take a stand to bullying!

Before I get into the issue of is a quick photo recap from Emma and I's Saturday afternoon at the beach!

I have to say...I LOVE INSTAGRAM!

So in regards to bullys....
BC teachers are withdrawing services as of Monday. We will be walking out....
We are taking a stand against the Government to try to get students needs met.
This is my first time going through a strike as an actual teacher. Its interesting to see people take to facebook, twitter and youtube to discuss the issue. It makes me so angry when people assume that the reason teachers are striking is just so we can get a raise.
People need to take the time to educate themselves about the issues that todays classrooms are facing.

My hope for this strike is that George Abbott and Christy Clark will get a mediator and will come to the table ready to negotiate...not just say "no". Something needs to be done for our students.
The Government is trying to bully teachers into rolling over. We will not roll over...we will take a stand to make sure students demands are being met as well as ours.

Two things to leave you with...

Support BC Teachers

This girl is amazing. She is so well spoken! Please take the time to have a listen.

And a fantastic quote...

"Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength of the nation."
-John F. Kennedy

Coming soon...
