Shame On You Governor Cuomo!

I am a proud product of NYC public schools and I have been a teacher for almost 18 years. I am also now a chapter delegate. I feel it is important to share part of my story with you all to show you that you don’t need to have an official position to help our schools. Teachers can make a difference in any capacity. We need to educate ourselves on this road to justice. The truth is not pretty out there and we need to make an impact. We need to be fierce and unrelenting. We ALL have a voice and we need to use it loud and clear. We are fighting for our schools, our children, and our livelihoods and I will not let anyone take that away from us! Today I am here to call out Gov Cuomo for failing to fund CFE. This is a disgrace and ALL of our children suffer because of this.

My school for the last 8 plus years is P811, which is a D75 school in Harlem. We have about 100 students with true special needs ranging from autism to being emotionally disturbed/learning disabled. We have an amazing team of teachers, paraprofessionals, counselors, and therapists. Our school is also co-located with the first Success Academy school and we have always been the “have nots” while they have been the “haves.” We are not allowed on their floors, but I have seen pictures. Why can’t our floors, our classrooms, even our bathrooms look like theirs? If our school was able to double dip, meaning receive both public and private funding, our teachers would not have to spend their own hard earned money on things for their classrooms and students. We get $77 this year for Teacher’s Choice. How many teachers spend only $77? Our children need books and lots of them, computers from this decade, manipulatives and toys that would promote learning, understanding, critical thinking, and creativity. These are just a few things and if our schools had more money, are students would truly benefit from it.

Shame on you Governor Cuomo! I call you out and I demand you to fully fund our schools!

My school is owed almost $900,000. How much is your school owed?

I wouldn't sell him, if he gets betetr then why not keep him until he reaches his potential and builds up a reputation, that way if someone decides to bid you'll score for more money and if not you're stuck with a world class right back.
