  1. Let's all leave our names in support of all the teachers who are teaching and have taught in New Bedford. I'll go first: Ellen M. Shaw


  2. Lori(Carreiro)Silveira supports her retired teachers/retired co-workers, any still remaining in the NBPS, and all of my colleagues doing the difficult work under extreme conditions each and every day in each and every school!


  3. Can't wait for Friday….so many people say they are going..let's take back our school system …throw the bums who created fear and a climate of mistrust to the wind…


  4. This Superintendent is a heartless person and intent on following through with mass firings. She must be derailed. We have tried to appeal to her humanitarian side, but Durkin is made of stone. She views us as dispensable commodities with little, or no value. We are much more than that.


  5. The administrators of NBHS had a responsibility to be proactive and seek and implement new reforms to address the areas of need. A true professional would educate him or herself, and apply that knowledge to the current situation. They would be relentless in their pursuits. This was not the case. The teachers picked up the slack as committees were formed. But when administration expects you to do all the work, and doesn't support you, your efforts become deflated. What is taking place now is the result of neglect by those who failed in their responsibility. Their misconduct is reflected upon the teachers as we shoulder the blame.
