Tension, that I didn’t realize I was holding, suddenly disappeared in an instant.
My mood lifted.
My tiredness lightened.
All this occurred when I read the headlines from this afternoon’s news presser.
Education workers will be vaccinated in April.
It seems too good to be true – the long standing narrative has been schools are safe and teachers are overreacting: You’ll get your vaccine in August.
No mask mandate at the elementary level, no reductions in class size, second highest workplace claims in the province for catching COVID while at work . . . to say teachers have been feeling gaslit is an understatement.
I’ll take my jab with a smile.
Now I can truly enjoy Spring Break.
