Show of Support

The polls, the honks we get on the picket line, the show of support from teachers unions accross the country and even in Washington state and Mexico, and the support of all other major unions in BC are all wonderful. They help encourage us, knowing that we're doing the right thing for students.

But the most encouraging things during this strike are the visits from parents and students, writing to MLAs, bringing hot chocolate, and coming to say hello.

There was one such visit today. M and R came with their mom to remind us that they're behind us all the way. The mom told us that yesterday, M was with her babysitter and her mom had given her a loonie to spend at the dollar store any way she wanted. She found this and decided to buy it as a present for her teacher.

Hehe, even though I can't see their faces, I can definitely see their hearts! Way to go kids!
