You should run for peeisdrnt of your local union. Als, I would like to say, first I appreciate your blog, especially the first letter to Hier Walker intensely. Secondly, I have high regard for you because you chose to continue with teaching even though you seem to have ability to seek higher income (I personally think you should seek those higher incomes, because well, the people of Wisconsin deserve to ly in the beds they made for themselves and losing quality like you may serve some purpose of that sort). I am a telecommunications technician, I'm in a union, I'm from Duluth. Mostly just wanted to say I appreciate someone like you who can articulate an argument. Good luck to you and don't let your students forget to analyze and keep asking themselves over and over as they witness class warfare around them why both sides fought so hard for what they wanted, maybe not neccesarily what was right but why they were so partison in pursuing there respective positions.

About Christine

  • About Christine

    Christine Rivet's post-secondary education started and ended at Ottawa's Carleton University where she decided the academic world needed her participation like a the varsity field hockey world did. (Translation: Not at all.) She did somehow obtain an undergraduate degree in journalism, though she's pretty sure she forgot to hand in that one essay on Russian foreign policy. Rivet also managed to survive her entire four-year varsity field hockey career without ever earning a yellow card. Though, Lord knows, she deserved plenty. Use this space to have your say and to update our readers on the local university scene.
