The Purple Stapler - A Story by a Teacher from the Bronx

NOTICE: We've Moved! Please click here to be taken to the new location!!

The last few days I've been visiting blogs written for and by teachers across the nation. The more I read about their experiences, the more I learn just how much adversity they are experiencing on a daily basis. It's incredible, really. The things they have to put up with on their meager salaries!

Their challenges include but are not limited to: students who do not want to learn, increasing student to teacher ratios, unwieldy educational bureaucracies, insanely tight budgets (would you believe teachers are forced to buy supplies out of their own pockets?) and irate, controlling parents.

One especially poignant story involves a stolen purple stapler that belonged to a special education teacher from the Bronx, New York. I encourage you to visit her blog let her words tug at your heart.
