Standing up for educators

I wish everyone felt the way that Matt Damon (yes, I said Matt Damon) felt about public schools and educators. If that were the case, we wouldn’t feel tempted to hang our heads low when we tell someone that we teach. Matt’s mom is a teacher, and he and his brother were in public schools their whole lives. They believe in us! We should believe in us, too! 🙂

As the media continues to slam public education(except I do have to say here that WSFA Channel 12 in Montgomery, AL does an outstanding job of promoting public schools and educators), we need some positive reinforcement in what we do-Matt delivers this in a rejuvenating speech at a Save Our Schools rally.

    Never hang you head when you proudly say, I am a professional educator! There is no such thing as just a teacher!
    Walk tall and proud, I do!
