Dedicated Teachers

This morning I found a positive article in a community
newspaper.I was really impressed to read that quite a few teachers
are so dedicated to their students that they buy books,
pencils,notebooks, etc for their own classroom and with their
own money.

Here is what one teacher said:
"Voss said she prefers to get books for her classroom collection in lieu of a gift from grateful parents or students."

What a good deed!

Sadly, most teachers are forced to buy their own supplies, at least here in this province. I just finished a year as a student teacher and saw teachers spending over $100/month on teaching aids, art supplies, and books.

My son's school has a class supplies list rather than personal needs and we also send in things when we see them on sale and stuff like that that would make good "stock" to have around. Another good program is "ADopt a classroom" we do this each year since my son has moved up to regular school I donate what I am saving in Daycare less school lunches to the classroom figure I would have been paying it if he was being cared for at daycare so why not make sure he has the tools and supplies needed to learn.

Dedicated teachers are the backbone of our society.

As a student, I applaud what these teachers have done. But it's sad that many students don't really appreciate good teachers. Everyday should be 'Teachers Day' for them.

I don't know of any teachers who DON'T have to do that. In other professions, they get expense accounts for fancy lunches. In teaching, we're expected to buy our own paper, pens, and curricula materials.

I understand the whole "teachers deserve more" mentality since all of my family are teachers -- mother, father, two sisters -- but the whole "they don't get enough credit" stuff is shite. Yes, they pay for things out of pocket, but so do I as a journalist, and I get paid a whole lot less. Plus, I don't get summers off with pay. My youngest sister makes 10k more than me, and she's got just one year seniority. Plus, she gets $10k for her summer gig teaching elsewhere. Plus, the state has great benefits (health, dentist,etc..) Not too shabby considering she spends a few hundred of her own cash on her students. Maybe it's different elsewhere.......
