Contract Day / Wellness Walk photos

(click the timestamp to see all the photos)

The Capital staff poses before entering en masse, 7:30.

Teachers from all over the district gather by the fountain, eight hours later.

Andy Nicholas carries the burden of increased expectations without increased compensation.

Mike Deakins backs up traffic.

It must be true... I read it in The Olympian.

Kevin Meserve and Christina Watts show support for their teachers.

Congregating in the shadow of the WASL Castle.

Ready to go in Sylvester Park.

The line got longer every time I looked.

The most politically savvy grandson in the state.

At long last: the Knox building.

David Johnston pleads the case for greater compensation.

Huge thanks to everyone who made it. We showed Olympia our strength, our resolve, and our unity. It brought back all the good memories from our last march three years ago, when I was a first-year teacher and fledgling union member. I am proud to teach with professionals who truly "keep the commitment."

Apologies for the CHS bias--if you have pictures (along with names of important figures), send 'em in and I'll be glad to post them, too. And don't forget that next Wednesday is another "Work to the Contract Day."
