"I teach in a Rural M/HS and our funding has been so drastically cut that we have lost several important courses such as art, art history, consumer science, marching band, German, French and several other electives. All this loss is due to lack of funding."
Sandra Schurr, Middle/High School Teacher
"I work two jobs to compensate for the low wage I receive after 5 years of teaching. Consistently asked to do more, yet my pay stays below market value."
Kyle Harris, Middle School Teacher
"I teach full time at the alternative high school, and I take on homebound students as well. Plus, I work a summer job as a apartment complex maintenance person."
Aubrey Clarke, High School Teacher
