Recognition for our Commitment is More Important Than Ever!
Andrée Marcotte, French Education Consultant, Primary Level
At the CSS des Laurentides, professionals were able to take on the back-to-school challenge as brilliantly as ever, but this time, in a very unusual context.
I want to especially applaud professionals for their work in schools. They have been rallying together since March 16th and were confronted with all the risks of going back to school this fall during a pandemic, including countless health measures, risk of infection, and mandatory tasks, such as monitoring challenges related to working from home, among others.
For as long as I can remember, professionals have been key players in the success of all students. All of these jobs are equally important, and that includes Education Consultants (EC) who worked tirelessly from March to June, supporting parents and teachers before their return to school. And they continue to do so today.
Now is the time to demand recognition for this boundless commitment that we make on a daily basis. We are hopeful that the ongoing negotiations with the government will be successful. Things have to change now!
