Get Tough #DCteachers

Dear colleagues,
I was about to call it a night when someone who needed to hide behind fictitious names tagged me of a link on Facebook and Twitter attacking each and everyone of Elizabeth Davis's Slate supporters. I would like to share my two cents worth on this.
We are professional educators and our character and credibility can stand on its own to get us to where we are destined to be without needing to hide behind comical names to degrade, lie about or demean anybody.
Manipulation of information and malicious accusations thrown at me and the candidates that I am supporting in this WTU election make me believe even more that we need to keep the faith, stay united, and get tough.
Tough means that we are willing to stand tall and persevere. Even when our mind and body signal perfectly good reasons for giving up, we go on. This tough is obvious. But tough can also be standing up to cynics and skeptics who mock our faith. Many times it will be tough to be kind. Be kind anyway.
This is our teacher's union and we are more than 3,000 strong. I am confident that our WTU Members will stand firm by teacher leaders who can give them respect, who will not tarnish and put a shame on the WTU, and who will carry the name for our teacher's union with pride. Let us use our common sense and make informed decisions about our candidates when we vote in this 2013 WTU Elections. I will stay by Elizabeth Davis's side and elect her for WTU President because this is the right thing to do. We need to regain what was once ours, now is the right time. This is a call to action.
