Some Photos from Week One, Prt. 1

Picketing is no joke, guys.  It’s grueling work that you don’t get paid for.  Not that I’m demanding pay…I walked out on my job.  I’m just trying to correct a common misunderstanding that I’m getting paid for not working.  I’m not.  At all.  And I’m starting to feel it.

Yesterday was the first day of Week Two of the CTU Strike.  Our spirits were down today; we really wanted to be back in the classroom.  Still, we are unified in our fight for a fair contract and for the future of our schools.

Last week, I took 1500 photos.  After Day 1, I got a little behind uploading them and posting them, so I spent the better part of yesterday sifting through them and post-processing the best ones.  Here are some highlights from last week!  Hope you enjoy!

A Fascinating Read…or Two

A few weeks ago, I got into a debate with a friend over the union.  She told me Karen Lewis wasn’t good for our union.  I respectfully disagreed.  After reading these two articles (here and here), I’m now realizing she’s way smarter than even I realized.  And I’m also realizing that she’s definitely smarter than our mayor and maybe even our president.

I’m proud to be striking and later today, I’ll share some additional thoughts on that later.  Right now, I’m too busy marching somewhere in the city and singing my new favorite hymn: “Hey, hey!  Ho, ho!  Rahm Emanuel’s got to go!”    Join me in a verse, won’t you?
