It’s Tuesday. Time for a Slice. More can be found at Two Writing Teachers.
Last week, a deadline was looming. I am so happy to report that our contract was settled. I just returned from the ratification meeting. We received good gains. Students won with a guaranteed budget for library materials based on a per student amount. Until 2007ish, we had healthy library budgets. Then the recession and the library budget was given to the building and it was up to the principal to decide what the budget should be. I was a lucky one and received a diminished but still a budget while other schools received ZERO dollars. Now, all buildings will have a library budget.
One of the arguments given by the district was that they were going to EBooks. No! Just No! Still a lot of educating on that end. This is a topic for another day.
Well, I need to get to bed as students arrive tomorrow. Students arrive! It didn’t happen without the support of the community and the teachers. We banded together for kids.
