Advocate And Fight For The Unsung Heroes of Our Public Schools: Classified Employees

We need to fight for them so they receive pay during these days of school closure. They are just as vital to the operation of our schools as anyone else, and I am thankful as a teacher to have these people keep our schools not only functioning, but vibrant.

If you have never really been inside the workings of a public schools, know that so many people work behind the scenes to help educate our students. If they were not doing what they do, then schools would never be as effective.

Today Mariah Morris, our NC Teacher of the Year,  hosted a YouTube discussion on her profile speaking about the need to lift the voices of these vital educational professionals. We need to heed that call and ask our legislators to help them as well in this time of school closures.

 

Thankful for these people at West Forsyth and all public schools. If I have missed any please let me know and I will add them to the list.

  1. Just like a great doctor is supported by a great nurse and so, a great teacher supported by a great teacher assistant! You can’t separate the two!
