Good Morning Smylee, I will have to take the Non-anonymous approach. You said your Union Rep said do it anonymous. First off, you guys need a new
Union. For a teacher to air her gripes with the school board, the Union should be there to have your back, Shoud'nt they? If there's problems with the
school being run down or problems with bad teachers, the Union can and should address these issues. As it directly results in teachers being deficent
in their jobs.
Some things need to be done the "anonymous route" as in being a member here. But IMHO, your voice needs to be heard, and heard loud & proud. The
parents, your students & your fellow teachers will see you for what you are. A really good teacher, with a desire to teach her kids as best she can.
To be the best teacher these kids ever had. The kids will remember you, the parents will back you up. Power in numbers young lady, power in
Go to your fellow teachers & parents. Get them on board with you, get their signatures on your letter and present it as a group ( a tight group ).
They can't fire you all. And they sure as hell can't fire the parents. Smylee, you can't fight a war all by yourself. As much as you want too, you
can't. Form a group of teachers and parents acting as one for the benefeit of your students & their children. Most parents want teachers like you, a
vocal advocate for their children's education.
I'll ask one question. Do you put any stock in anything that is brought out into the public forum that's anonymous? Example, as in this Anonymous
internet group that does all the hacking. Just what have they done the anonymous route that has taken root and became something? Allmost nothing. With
that said, put on that Smylee face and be the teacher that takes a stand for her kids. You all are a dying breed, teachers who actually give a shat
about their students. Good luck, which ever way you go, I'll be all about some good Karma for you.
I would get the local paper to be there for a nice write up about these problems, the parents may noy go to these school board meetings, but most read
that local paper. No administrator wants their name in the news with bad press.
