Chalk Holiday

When I was teaching for years, I can't remember that I was given a budget for blackboards or chairs. In fact, my students are using an old material that goes back in the 80's. When I needed these kind of materials for the students, I make it as a PTA project or from my own pocket. Luckily for me, the parents were very supportive and the classroom projects were always successful. All the projects stayed in my classroom when I left. What I am hoping for is that the teacher who took over my room takes care of the property that I left behind.

The classroom projects that we have includes: TV monitor, DVD player, new customized tables, a new blackboard, cabinet with 50 divisions and old flash animation cartoons. I was hoping that the audio-visual materials that I left behind are still intact so that the next generation of learners can use it.

Teachers have another concern with regards to chalk allowance. The yearly chalk allowance budget per teacher is actually not enough. I remember that when I run out of chalk, I buy from my own pocket. I believe that most of the teachers are doing that too. They deserve a break! It is high time to add the budget! Voice out through chalk holiday!
