We all know tomorrow is Election Day.
Get out there and vote!
Tomorrow, the school that I work for will be a polling place. I have very mixed (and strong) feelings about this.
First of all, I know that schools are a community center.
I get that.
But ... I also know that schools need to be a place where kids feel safe ... and ARE safe.
With so many random people coming onto campus tomorrow ... I have to be honest ... I'm not feeling great about it.
This sounds like a completely pessimistic viewpoint, but I also think it's a realistic viewpoint; keeping our student's safety in mind. There will be many people on campus tomorrow.
I don't know.
I'm sure everything will be great and fine.
I'm just not feeling 100% about it is all.
Call me overprotective.
Call me pessimistic.
Call me a Debbie Downer.
But while you're at it ... you can also call me caring, safe, conscious, aware and protective of my students.
