We went down to Khi's new school today to show our support to his teachers and School staff! We handed out 100Grand candy bars, and told them they were worth it! We met language teachers, history teachers, math teachers, PE teachers, and school counselors, all of whom were incredibly kind and thankful to have us stop by!
📚 PAY Y'ALL UP : my new word for the city in which I live... and what they need to do for the teachers! #puyallup 📚👱🏻♀️ Gabi (my 8yo)- MOM what is a #STRIKE 💣 WELL... In my home we don't hide realistic truths or sugar coat things 🤷🏼♀️... I played her the #puyallupschooldistrict voicemail and when she didn't quite grasp the it, I explained in terms so she could. 🖤 Our Convo 🖤
Say dad gives me $20 to split between you and brother for your allowance. Now you did chores (and very good) to get this... WELL... Say I hand your bro $10 and you $7...
👱🏻♀️🤔 Gabi pipes in... BUT MOM... that's not fair...
🖤 I said you're 100% right, BUT I'm not done... NOW when you ask for your #money 💰... I will either give you an excuse, like tell you "well I paid for your toy last week so just be happy", or explain that over the course of your next few allowances I will get that back to you. 🤔NOW... How would you feel?
👱🏻♀️ Gabi replies... I would be mad, upset, and feel like you didn't even care about me.
🖤 Well... THAT IS EXACTLY how your #teacher is feeling... BUT their money isn't for play, it's what they use to LIVE... and well, buy stuff for your #classroom 🤷🏼♀️
🖤I then asked... Would you give me attitude? Or #debate and argue with me? (Disregard that you know you're not supposed to)
👱🏻♀️ Gabi said well... Yeah 🙄🤷🏼♀️...
🖤 I said well THIS is what your #teachers are doing, but in a controlled and more "polite" approach and environment (because obviously a hissy fit won't quite work for them)... so #negotiations 🗣
I did this #firstdayofschool aka #firstdayofstrike sign yesterday but waited for the update last night (was kinda hoping it would be a "Remember that year where the kids were delayed a day" kinda deal)...
I added #Tacoma because we're pretty much adjoined and in this together. #tacomaschooldistrict
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE if you agree and/or #support our local teachers. 🖤

We support teachers! For shame @tacomaschools for your divisive tone in emails and on social media. Stop blaming teachers for the ongoing strike and start listening to your community! We want what’s best for our kids and that is well paid and qualified staff/teachers! ❤️ #Redfored#tacomateachers#tacomaschools

BEST. DAY. EVER. What do you do for a kiddo who is so filled with gratitude that he walks to school every day carrying a “thank you” sign to show the people building his new school how he feels about them? You thank him right back – in a big way. TPS and general contractor #Skanska made second grader Jacob Levitt an honorary boss for a day, showed him around the building – still under construction – and let this construction-loving kid do some work on his new school. Thank, you, Jacob! We can’t wait to see you walk into your new school later this fall.
