In the midst of this ridiculous, unnecessary and heartbreaking crisis, my spirits were lifted to extraordinary heights by a surprise visit from a former student on our first strike day at Terry Fox Secondary. 

Not only did he stop by to lend support to our ranks, he brought coffee and donuts for a very large picket line, and stayed several hours sharing stories with me.  Reminiscing about my most-cherished years at Maillard Middle with him, was only surpassed by happiness and relief to know that one of my most at-risk students ever, was able to overcome insurmountable odds and continues to work towards the potential I have always known he has.  It’s evidence of these connections that bolster my spirits… and I will continue fighting now, so that Riley’s little boy will one day start kindergarten with ample resources, structured support and teachers who are valued and respected.
