"I feel so blessed to get to work with such a great group of kids. I want to do everything I can to help them develop and utilize their strengths so they can be successful in the future," Ling says.

Help B.C. Teachers Feel Valued With #thisisYOURstrikepay

I am a B.C. teacher, and lately I feel like I should apologize for that. I'm so tired of hearing how awful I am. How greedy. How I shouldn't want more for my students. Let's get teachers feeling valued because things are rough right now, and it's getting hard to remember by ourselves.

This Is My Strike

This Is My Strike Pay

To the student who would overthrow the ball in baseball (but not make it obvious) so our autistic student could get on base. This is my strike pay. To have students say they are my kids and even give me Mother's Day gifts because they think of me as important, like a mom. This is my strike pay.
