So, taking a page from my own play book, I decided to spend some time over the past few weekends making sure my voice was heard. After work last Friday, a friend and I headed to Madison. I've also spent the past two Saturdays there. I've been with my husband, my cousin-in-law and two of our really good friends. Though none of them are teachers themselves, they all know someone or some people who will be affected by the proposed bill.
I remain optimistic (I have to), and I am glad that I took the time to visit Madison and rally with other like-minded individuals. Being a part of something so important is a powerful feeling!
