I’m keen on pay equity via my daughter is 17 and will be entering the workforce in the next few years. Go hard for what is right and build on the gains of your mothers and grandmothers!
You are valuable, worthwhile & totally needed so be your most authentic self, freely expressed, & deserving of equity on all levels.
You are perfect just as you are.
Every day I go to work and change children’s lives by providing a welcoming space, filled with books to encourage curiosity and develop imagination. A centre point to access information for knowledge building and best of all the love of reading.
When you read this women will have won the right to fair pay and will no longer have to explain why we deserve to be paid as much as men.
Today, I’m proud to be part of the movement that made that possible for you.
From Vivienne Johnson
I love helping people!…I love helping children grow in confidence and be proud of their achievements! I love seeing their faces when they ‘get it!’ Such a rewarding career.
Enjoy wholeheartedly what path you choose. Be generous with your time and skills to others who need support.
Be a lifelong learner.
Above all else , value yourself and know your worth.
I go to work everyday to empower students to be the best they can with the resources they have and to never say ‘it is not possible’.
Being there for them and teaching them the strategies and skills they need to learn. My work helps children become confident learners and better citizens. Knowing that I make a difference in their lives makes me feel great!
We need better funding for support staff as they are grossly underpaid for the time and effort that they put in. With more funding we are able to employ support staff to work with individual students and to assist with tasks that take a teachers attention away from educating the students.
