Speech: Ms. Cruz implores to MDCPS Board: "Honor teachers!"


Ivonne Cruz has been teaching for 19 years, yet she only makes $5,000 more than a beginning teacher.

In this speech, she speaks to how both veteran grandfathered (tenured) and performance pay (entry-level) teachers are being denied income to which they are legally entitled to.

Her impassioned words state the sad truth, teachers are:

"...vulnerable to the decisions of this [Miami-Dade School] Board."

" pay-check-to-paycheck."

"...feeling cheated and undervalued."

"...forced to work two jobs."

She implores the Miami-Dade County School Board to honor teachers by showing them true leadership and providing them with clear answers.
