Strike: Day 5 -
Let me just say that last Friday’s accomplishments were possible due to the #sacrifice
of the day before. I wish I hadn’t missed day 4 of our strike but it enabled me to stand with my colleagues and all #teachers
on day 5.
It was an amazing day. I brought this super old drum I used to play when I was a #BoyScout
in troop 58.
I really wanted all three of my kids to be there - to witness this moment of history - but I knew it would be too much for my little #Serena
🌙 and my eldest son wasn’t able to join me due to a group project he had to complete. Ethan, however, welcomed the chance to see firsthand what the strike was all about.
I have so many more photos and videos of this experience but here are a few of the top memories captured.
It was great meeting and getting to talk to @seanastin
about the strike and education. I had no idea his cousin was one of my former colleagues, haha. He’s a really cool dude. What was really special to me was being there with my son and my father. You realize at moments like these that three generations of your family are impacted by the outcome of this strike. This makes you stand taller; even when you’re tired. It makes you rally with over 60,000 teachers and supporters from all over the city; even if close proximity with complete strangers is required.
I am standing side by side my brothers and sisters in education. When the strike is over, I will always remember those that stood with me - and those that crossed our line ... On to week 2 of the strike!!! #captainslog #thefiteducator #fiteducator #teachersofig #teachersofinstagram #teacherstrike #LAStrike #utla #utlastrike #MadisonTeachersUnited #LAUSDStrike
