You may have heard that teachers in AZ are on strike as of today and most of us have children home until further notice.
Our children are our future, and that not only starts with us as parents, but obviously our teachers are an integral part of this equation. They serve as a tremendous influence/impact on our future leaders. To this day, I stand firmly behind the notion that my 9th grade teacher, Mr. Chandler at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school, is the very reason I’m a writer today. Through my trials and tribulations as a young girl, he believed in me and made me feel as though I could do and accomplish anything. I will never forget him and have attempted to locate Duke Chandler over the years to tell him as such. I will always support the powerful influencers of today’s society and feel they are in need of our voices during this time.
We support our teachers and an increase in funding for our Arizona schools and teacher salaries, which are grossly in deficit, especially when you consider such things. Whichever side you’re on, this is a powerful image! #redfored #LoveUP #ARIZONA❤️🙏🏼
