Appreciation on the First Day of School: #Iwillholdtheline

P1060434So the first day of school in BC this year – a time that is usually exciting and feels full of possibility – is little different from most…

Picketing is not the most promising start to the school year… but I am heartened by the support in our community and across the province.

Thank you to the parents who organized an #MLAplaydate at our Liberal MLA’s constituency office today. I was proud to join you with H and Craig this morning.

Thank you to the CUPE members who are with us in solidarity on the lines.

Thank you to the families of my students, past and current, who continue to be so encouraging and who demonstrate such faith and trust that teachers are advocating for their children.

Thank you to my colleagues for your commitment to the future of public education in our province.  I am proud to stand with you ♥
