I think we should ALL take

I think we should ALL take the SAME day off! Shame on you Beverly Perdue. The wording makes it look like we are losing pay, but gaining something. We are actually losing twice- not gaining anything. Being forced to take off what would be a paid workday --and not get paid or get much needed work completed! We are already expected to be “Highly Qualified”, (spend our own money making sure we continue to stay highly qualified), are held accountable to make sure that each of the students in our over-crowded classrooms is not only performing at or above grade-level, but is prepared to pass the ever increasing state mandated assessments. We provide multiple individualized accommodations daily for all students including those with special needs and those who have disruptive behavior disorders, work extra hours after school and on Saturdays to help students that have too many absences or are at risk of failing, we are assigned to committees and have extra curricular duties, we make sure our students are well fed and have enough exercise, we must provide ways for students to learn positive character traits and we must enrich them with global awareness, ETC!!! I'm sure that Beverly Perdue, back in her days of teaching, never experienced anything even close to the overwhelming accountability we have to manage daily. How many more kicks can our guts take?
