The Story of One Little Teacher
When I first joined BadAss Teachers Association I did not expect to become so embroiled in the trenches, fighting against the corporate educational reformists. I am one little teacher, struggling to find my voice among the so many that constantly ask for help.
When I become deeply involved in the inner workings of BATs I did not expect to be pushed to the forefront as a face for our movement, as a voice that speaks for many. I am one little teacher, struggling to find my voice among the so many that constantly call out for something to be done.
When I went to see Governor Christie at a Republican rally I did not expect it to have nearly the amount of reaction that actually occurred. I am one little teacher, struggling to raise my voice against the current system.
When I asked BadAss Teachers Association for letters to Obama, I did not expect my inbox to become flooded with hundreds of responses. I did not expect the outpouring of emotions, the personal stories, the well-thought out essays of facts and analysis. I am one little teacher, struggling to find a way to help us be heard.
When you a full of despair , stressed over the current state our educational system is in, feel that everyone is against you as you fight for the rights of your students, isolated within yourself, feeling that you are but just one little teacher; remember too that I am just one little teacher.
We must continue and show them that they can no longer ignore just one little teacher.
