I love the work teachers do. They are the reason our students are learning, each day, so why are they overstressed and underpaid? Well, it is because they are not given the respect they deserve. I read a lot of articles about good teachers versus bad teachers, but what I do not see is how to begin respecting our teachers. All teachers have stresses, and some of them simply boil down to disrespect, whether it is from administration, government, colleagues, and of course, students, it occurs. I have decided teachers need to be rewarded, they are on the front lines of the educational journey for many youth, and they need to be respected for dealing with all levels of academic changes and student concerns.
As part of The Cush Center for Learning, Inc., I will have my after-school programs for STEM, and we will have great tutors to help with reinforcement of the STEM subjects, but what we need are teachers to volunteer their time and work with our kids too. I do not wish for teachers to do this gratis, as they often buy their own school supplies and make their own copies and all because they are passionate about education, so I will give all certified teachers, who offer their services to The Cush Center for Learning, Inc. a stipend for doing just that. There is no reason why they must leave work, and help my center out, and not be compensated. I will see to it, that they get their just rewards. I find no reason why this cannot happen or shall not happen, so let’s support The Cush Center for Learning, Inc. today, so I can make that happen. In addition, I will garner the grant money to ensure this endeavor is everlasting, for future teachers who come to help us out. I believe in paying things forward in society, and it starts now.
