This site is a place for teachers to talk about our everyday realities at work. We love our work, and we love our kids. We also face challenges which may not be apparent to the general public. The better people understand our jobs, the better placed we are to advocate for what’s best for our students.
Are you a teacher with a story (or ten)? Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not include anything that could identify you or your students. Talk about the positives, but also the challenges, of being a teacher. Include a title and, if possible, an image. Feel free to get creative: write your story on a whiteboard and take a picture, include an image that tells a story in itself, or just type it out and send.
This site is a project of Educators for Social Justice – Nova Scotia.
