From a colleague:

Teaching is such a rewarding job. But this is teaching...

"Today I Strike

Yesterday I shivered in my dressing gown as I phoned reliever after reliever, hoping for a “yes”.

So today I strike.

Last week a colleague came to school sick, because there were no relievers and she didn’t want her class split.

So today I strike.

A fortnight ago, my eftpos was declined on a $87 supermarket bill.

So today I strike.

A month ago a promising young teacher told me he didn’t think he could do another year.
See, the factory up the road pays as much as he gets, and would mean he could spend his evening with his family, not his laptop.

So today I strike.

Last term I lost sleep for a week. A student had hit me, and I worried that I hadn’t done enough for him.

So today I strike.

And these are not just my stories. Every teacher has their own.

So today WE strike.

It’s time.

Kua tae te wā!"
