Why Teach if you get No Respect???

As I prepare myself to walk the picket line today, as teachers in British Columbia walk off the job to protest legistlation which will dramatically damage the school system, I was thinking about why Teachers are so undervalued.  Why do we teach if we get no respect?  Here's a little video to give you a boost about how important teachers really are.

  2. How'd it go today? We froze to death in Victoria standing outside for 6 hours straight. Sitting by my fire now :)

  3. I froze as well, but it looks as if the general public supports us. Too bad the government doesn't.

  4. I love the video! It is so true; we are so often judged harshly in the public eye a nd they don't see all those things that we do. I'm from Alberta and you and all the BC teachers have been on my mind this week. I've taught close to 30 years and have been fortunate to never have experienced a strike. Hugs to you! I hope it is all resolved satisfactorily soon.

  5. I love this video, so true.
