This was sent by a DeKalb teacher feeling frustrated and very much under-appreciated about what used to be called Teacher Appreciation Week, but has now blossomed into Staff Appreciation Week. Parents – please do everything you can to personally let your children’s teachers know how much you appreciate their hard work and determination to continue to do the right thing even in the face of extreme uncertainty and sacrifice.
I am a daily reader of your blog and want to thank you for all of your recent efforts regarding the teacher contracts debacle. Your blog is really the ONLY place where the TRUTH can be discussed honestly and freely.
Just thought you might like to see what the teachers received this morning, along with a half of a muffin, for “Teacher Appreciation Week” (also called “Staff Appreciation Week” apparently.) I fished it out of the trash can in the teacher’s lounge.
Thank you again for all you do for the students, parents and teachers of DCSS.
