I just hope I can keep hanging on ... Submitted to NBEA
It is hard not to give up when no progress is seen. As a second career professional, I have never seen such abuse. It is not something I want to tolerate for much longer. Life is way too short. I know I bring a great deal to the table to my students. My education and life experiences I feel are very valuable. This superintendent, mayor and school committee do not seem like they have the slightest concern for Teachers. I am fairly new to this profession and I have the utmost respect for those that have taught for years as a career choice. You are to be commended. I can walk away, but most of you cannot. I hope and pray that things improve. The New Bedford Teachers are the most dedicated, finest group of people I have had the privilege to work with. I have worked in several school districts and your professionalism is unmatched. I am proud to be included among you. I just hope I can keep hanging on.
