Tip of the hat to TDSB's · teachers in the trenches A TDSB teacher (I'll withhold her namre because I didn't have time to clear publishing this with h!'!r)' writes - - "I am a secondary school music teacher in the TDSB ... Yes, there is a work to rule campaign in lace at the elementary and secondary levels this spring. Yes, it seems that there is always some kind of trouble brewing in the education system these days (since about 1995 in fact). However, I would like to make it perfectly clear that extra-curricular activities hiive not been affected by the current campaign. My schQOI just finished presenting a three night _run of a musical, a performance at Massey Hall, a Junior Spring Concert, Senior Spring Concert, a performance at the George Weston, a music banquet, ... still to come a music festival at Canada's Wonderland. I know several others doing the same. No one is more sick and tired of all the political nonsense (government, board or union) than my colleagues and I. But we do a pretty fine job with our hands constantly tied behind our back. Let's hear the positive about an already niuch maligned profession. • W Ware Academy of ~~~!-~· .-- *~ ·"?.i ~· , Achieving Musical Excellence! ~ff:f,j ,;J f 1 * J - l~c .
