Trump wil wapens bestrijden met… nog veel meer wapens. Misschien overbodig om te vermelden, maar de meeste leraren vinden dit een belachelijk idee. Daarom zijn ze sinds het voorstel van Trump een tegenbeweging begonnen. Met de hashtag #ArmMeWith proberen ze een boodschap naar hun president te sturen, en vragen ze hem om de dingen die ze écht nodig hebben om de situatie op Amerikaanse scholen te verbeteren. Namelijk geld, tijd en middelen.
I stand with the #armmewith movement. This army of teachers has the ammunition to fight for our students and our colleagues, and we will not be silenced. #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #teachersofinsta #teachersofthegram #teachersofig #teachersoftpt #teacherspayteachers #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachk #iteachfirst #iteachsecond #iteachkinder #iteachwhatsyoursuperpower #teachyourheartout #teacherlife

This teacher Instagram community is amazing! I am so proud to stand beside my fellow teachers who will fight to ensure that guns are not placed in the hands of teachers. Our schools lack counselors, restorative justice professionals, psychologist and many other necessary positions due to the lack of funding. #armmewith more resources, professionals and time to spend with my students so that I can actually build meaningful relationships♥️
#armmewith 💪🏻💪🏼💪🏽💪🏾💪🏿glue guns, not handguns so my students can express themselves 🖌 through their art 🖍and not through violence! And telling teachers they’d get a bonus for carrying one is insulting to every hardworking teacher in this country! #shame #neveragain #notonemore #teachersofinstagram #artteachersofinstagram #iteachtoo #kidsfirst

I AM A TEACHER. NOT A POLICE OFFICER, NOT A SOLIDER, NOT A BODY GUARD. I would risk my life to save my students but I would never keep a concealed gun in my classroom, nor use it EVER. #ArmMeWith TISSUE & PAPER TOWELS. that’s all, Please & Thank you.

Hi, I’m a teacher. I don’t want a gun. I could use some more dry erase markers. Thanks for your time.

#Armmewith is a movement by @thesuperheroteacher and @missbertels_ and I invite you to join in! Skip through my pics and post your own (I’ve included a blank template) or go to goo.go/52XggF to print your own out! . . . The Arm Me With movement is to make our leaders aware of what teachers really need in the classroom. As some of you know, I’m a gun owner and I can shoot a gun, but I do not believe guns belong anywhere near a classroom. Teachers have enough burdens and the classroom is an unpredictable place. Also teachers are outnumbered by kids 30:1 oftentimes. Guns are not the solution here, and I think they’d be catastrophic. Please flip through my ideal solutions and feel free to use the blank picture to create your own solution! . . . . . . #armwithme #schoolsafetynow #educatorsagainstgunviolence #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers
The day teachers are asked to carry guns in the classroom is the day I leave my dream job I’ve had since I was 16 years old. I don’t want to take away guns. I want control on them.#armmewith #enoughisenough #schoolsafetynow pic.twitter.com/XIHjWTSE7H

I am a teacher. Arm me. Arm me with funding for a full time school Psychologist. Arm me with funding and mandatory school counselors. Arm me by funding smaller class sizes so I can best get to know every one of my 160 students and their families. Arm us with what we NEED.
