ATA meme hits a nerve

Greg Lemieux

I use the same textbooks that I used for 7–8 science. When I taught physics, the textbooks were published when I was born!

Meaghan Toth

Oh man, I was still in grade school and now

I teach [that curriculum].

Solid perspective. We need to stay informed and engaged. Now is not the time to be asleep at the wheel as union members.

It was wonderful to start my day by meeting and having coffee with 7 @albertateachers representatives. Thanks for sharing your experiences and providing me with insight into the successes and challenges in southwestern Alberta!
