On Physical Education,
sense of humor and personal goals:
"We should all have a goal.
I have two in the front yard. That's all the goals my family can fit in the yard.
PE is highly important. ...some days as much as test scores or building funds.
I hate to see obese, inactive kids, but they are always on their phones or in front of a tv somewhere!
It has been proven that physical activity affects student achievement and can help children concentrate on academics. The reason they continue to cut PE/athletics budget and pay the coaches very little is simple.
We have nothing to do with test scores. We just keep the athletes and the parents happy. We do it because we love sports."
from a confused pe teacher with a masters who got it right before they stopped paying teachers to get one.
I have mine, but why would
a teacher get one now?
it...just a thought...
I'm just a parent !!
MY main goal in the bid for Wake County School Board is to make Wake one of the best school districts in the state for ALL students, teachers and parents.
Wake County has one of the highest percentages of teachers who have earned their national boards. I want to give teachers input in the choices that affect their career and the success of their students.
I want to take the steps needed to make
Wake County innovative
and a leader in education. The changes are coming and so is the achievement school district plan. I'm very competitive and not proud of where teacher training and input stand in Wake County Public Schools.
This state doesn't even pay for masters degrees.
This state no longer provides the incentive pay for a teacher to get National Boards.
What else can I say to let you know why the teachers are leaving?
They can move to VA and get about a $5,000 raise without masters pay...
I like Virginia. It has the beach and the mountains and a great school system.
that's a different state... with bargaining power for their kids and their schools.
VA is most likely union? Not sure?
No laws in place there saying that unions are illegal even though they improve education.
Most states have unions for all jobs from firemen, state employees, teachers,transportation and police.
They are represented by
Teamsters in our state.
You are in a "right to work state" that will never change unless you start voting and speaking up for that.
North Carolina did have a good school system and pay when I started my career in. They had textbooks for kids too. No schools have a textbook that a student can actually take home.They put worksheets in their book bags but no books unless they go to a different school system like a private school system. Some kids learn on computers but no kid learns the same way.
I've been here all my life.
I don't know why we are falling behind in education, but this website may help.
If you could help by volunteering to pass out information on Tuesday, November 8th you may call or email me please.
