WHAT AN AMAZING RALLY! OVER 600 TEACHERS CAME, WORE RED, CHANTED, CARRIED SIGNS, AND STAYED FOR THE BOARD MEETING.

SVEA Group

Eric Heins, President of CTA came from Burlingame to support us. He fights at local, state, and national levels for the rights and dignity of all educators. He believes in a stronger teaching profession and a stronger union.

Kathryn Jaronczyk spoke on behalf of SVPSA stating they are standing strong with us and that we must not let them break us apart.

Vanessa Stroud, a parent who believes teachers deserve more, but definitely more respect and dignity from the district.

Patty Stewart discussed the importance of bargaining. She made sure we understood all the steps we have taken in the 30+ sessions.
As President, I helped show our strength by speaking at the rally and inside at the Board Meeting with 9 other teachers. The teachers spoke from their heart. Their points were "right on." Then more disrespect when Dr. Harwick put up a slide to show why he thought he was giving us what we wanted. We felt disrespected and 300+ teachers walked out of the boardroom in mass.

I will leave you with a quote from author Mark Amend:
“Be strong enough to stand alone, be yourself enough to stand apart, but be wise enough to stand together when the time comes.”

And you have.

And I value each of you,
Barbara Schulman
SVEA President (Retired)
