Tentative Agreement

Negotiations were looking pretty dismal when I took these photos of colleagues as we picketed in a freak rainstorm on Thursday afternoon.  Really! I was soaked even though I held an umbrella. our tenacity had to be admired judging by the many honks from the traffic passing by. 

Today I received an email from the union with a tentative agreement. Yippee! It really isn't so much about money as it is about teachers' evaluation process and having a say in how we spend our extra hours at school. I sure wish we could get more PE or Art for the students but that is not happening this year.  I spent no small amount of time on the computer this Labor Day weekend, looking at information on the Common Core Standards and how to have little ones be able to state what they are learning. I purchased this from the Teachers Notebook site. Now if only this district had a print shop or an color printer in the school. Instead I am faced with printing 111 pages on our home computer ):
