I feel I need to ‘shout out’ for Teachers everywhere. There is a school of thought that they go home and finish work at 3.30,…. but BTFL have to say that we have seen many indications recently that their days are getting longer and longer with the advent of the ‘Smart Phone’!!
I used to e mail teachers at tea time and expect a reply maybe the next working day. Now it is becoming the norm to receive a reply in the evening or late at night! When I question them, they all reply that they have to deal with a huge amount of work…..including catching up on e mails, in their evenings and weekends.
Can we offer our thanks to them for taking the time to deal with our requests for school involvement- as it would be very easy for them not to bother!!
