Wordsgood 526 Posted February 11, 2014 Share Posted February 11, 2014 Hello Teachers! I just wanted to drop a Thank You note. I frequently check the these education boards to find answers and ideas for my personal use of Evernote. One thing I keep seeing over and over again, regardless of someone's physical location, is that teachers & instructors are increasingly EXPECTED - not asked - to use their own personal resources to carry out their duties. Your own money, time and energy is expended far above and beyond what they you are actually paid to do. And as a whole, your wages are sub-standard...or to put it another way, they suck! I know this happens to a certain degree in most, possibly all, employment situation situation in the world. (It certainly was true of every job I ever had. Especially as a lowly clerical worker for the three different levels of government.) But comparatively speaking, educators are among the worst hit, in my opinion. I really hate it when someone starts harping within earshot about how "easy" teachers have it. I have to fight the sudden urge to bite them...especially when it's directed at K-12 teachers. I have seen, first hand, how few resources are provided to public school institutions and educators, even here in a "wealthy" western country. (Canada.) So this is my personal THANK YOU. Yes, I'm talking to YOU! Wordsgood p.s. I hope you're grading this post on a curve... Link to comment
