Santa Clarita Valley says, “Thank you” to our Teachers…

 Teachers already have it bad enough. Wages have stagnated, so teachers now earn less on average than they did 30 years ago. Many have to work additional jobs to support their meager salary, and they’re still expected to pay for school supplies out of a shallow pocket. They are genuinely not fairly compensated for the work they do, and society does little to thank them.
According to a Time magazine article titled, “I work three Jobs and Donate Blood Plasma to Pay the Bills. This Is What It’s Like to Be a Teacher in America,” 52-year-old teacher Hope Brown sells her blood twice a week to make ends meet. And Hope is a well-educated teacher with a Master’s Degree in Education! – Katie Reilly
So many professions are put up on a pedestal and looked up to by adults and children alike: firefighters, doctors, nurses, policemen, businessmen, actors, athletes, inventors. Each of those professions has one thing in common – they all have teachers who helped them get to where they are. Teachers are the silent, unsung heroes behind the celebrated heroes.
Despite being overworked, underpaid, disrespected, and mostly unsupported, teachers who raise our kids and teach tomorrow’s leaders tirelessly return to their classrooms day after day to do it anyway…
Why? Because they love their students and believe that what they do makes a difference…and it does.
We want our teachers to know how much we love what you do, and recognize the sacrifices you make on behalf of our children.
