#7 - Amplifying Zach
Hallie and Joanna amplify more results from the survey that educators have been responding to. Go to tinyurl.com/BeHeardEducators, to take the survey if you haven’t already.
Then, there is another educator on the podcast - Zach!
Zach highlights how teachers may have felt they were in a “Goldilocks district” until 2020 exaggerated and exposed the hierarchy system within education. He eloquently outlines how decisions are made from people with no 'skin in the game’ because there is a lack of communication between who makes the decisions in a school versus who’s working with students on a daily basis.
Hallie, Joanna, and Zach discuss the incredible resilience of students and the importance of creating communities within the classroom. They are noticing the deep compassion children have during difficult times.
Lastly, Zach shares how he has transcended his anger to focus on things that “give him Life”, which tends to be union work. He describes how an under-shared benefit of being part of the union is the feeling of being empowered because we work towards something bigger than ourselves. Everything about the union is a win-win situation.
Give Zach some love and let us know your thoughts - on Facebook and Instagram @EducatorsAmplified or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
