“Show Some Respect”

   

Description from Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick: Our character education program uses different colors to represent each trait. Respect is yellow.
We are in our second year without a contract and the board of ed refuses to negotiate. Apparently one board member is upset because the teachers' union didn't back him last year.
Now - we are all supposed to wear yellow on Wednesday's to remind admin and BOE to respect us for all of hard work.
(I DO NOT wear yellow well, so I'm going to have to accessorize big time with fab jewelry!)

    Thank you ladies!
    I think the wreath would make a good toggle. Just need a bar. I considered black and yellow too. Has to be done just right so it doesn’t look like a bumblebee. The blue tiger eye will work with my navy slack. Maybe obsidian with citrine and my charcoal gray slacks. I can hear it now. My colleagues already comment that I beads for every outfit.

    Nothing wrong with beads for every outfit…I like to do that myself! This is a great pick, and I agree with you about the wreath making a good toggle. The blue tiger eye is perfect with the yellow, and I love the gold accents! :D
    I wish you luck with that contract and hope that something breaks for all of you soon! ;)

    All sounds too familiar to me!! We went without for 4 years, picketed every one of them! Awful…our community still has yet to heal. I wonder if it will ever?!? Best of luck to you!

    I found a really cool yellow top! If I have to wear yellow – it must be stylish! Now for the gems!

    Thank you Deb and Jen.
    Jen, I can’t imagine 4 years. Technically, it’s the 3rd year without negotiating, although the we extended the contract the first year, so we did get a raise, but not these last two. We’re really hoping to avoid picketing. We’re doing what we can to remain professional in the eyes of the public.
