My heart just breaks for all of the teachers. When I first met my husband he was shocked that I paid my bills and then went shopping for supplies for my class. That was 28 years ago.
I really dislike Gates, Duncan and all of the other horrible people trying to harm the education of our children. I couldn't believe it when Duncan was appointed and it has gotten worse in the past three years.
Keep up the good fight and remember there are millions more like me that support you and not Gates.
