The Board Meeting

This evening we had a board meeting to determine final layoffs. The board voted 5 to 2 in favor of laying off 200+ teachers (including me). I continue to be very afraid for California and the state of our schools. I continue to worry about Connor's future. I pray that some day we realize that having 30 kindergartners in one classroom is going to take its toll on the very precious things that matter most: our students.

I am so sorry! We are getting to be in that same bind here, just absorbing positions instead of filling the vacancies. We are busting at the seams in my town because we just have one elementary school and there are almost 1000 students on a 1-5 campus. We have 10 teachers/ most grade levels and most classrooms have at least 22 students. Going into education I am worried too!
