29 March For Our Lives Teacher Signs That Gave Us Chills

What teachers at the March For Our Lives rally had to say about gun violence.

The Best March for Our Lives Teacher Signs

It was the tenacity and passion of students that mobilized the March For Our Lives movement this past weekend. Over 200,000 people gathered in Washington D.C. to show their support against gun violence. In case that wasn’t impressive enough, over 800 marches took place simultaneously around the world. Did we mention that all this was coordinated by 17- and 18-year-olds in just a few short weeks?! Talk about the kind of stuff that makes teachers proud.

Although the front lines of the march were comprised of students, teachers were right behind them showing their support. (Because that’s what we do.) Here were some of the messages teachers had to share:

We march for our students.

We protect our students.

We never give up.

Arming teachers is irrational.

Arms are for hugging…

… and compassion.

These are choices we shouldn’t have to make.

This calls for our teacher voice.

Seriously, don’t mess with our teacher voice.

Arm us with support.

Arm us with funds.

Arm us with politicians who listen.

While we’re on the topic of politicians:

Here’s how to earn a teacher’s vote.

We stand with the kids. #NeverAgain #MarchforOurLives

You know what else is an issue? Our salaries.

These priorities don’t match up.

The plan is to fan this spark into a flame ?

This is what a real teacher looks like.

We are SO proud of our students.

There is still so much I want to share with you from this weekend, but first and MOST – it’s these KIDS. These teen girls stood in front of us for most of the March for Our Lives on Saturday in D.C. They were hearing impaired and I still regret letting that keep me from trying to talk with them. We constantly complain about this new generation being clueless, self-absorbed SNOWFLAKES, but guess what? WE WERE WRONG. WE. WERE. WRONG. These girls, this generation, look at them! In our world where teens emulate celebrities, these girls came out to the March for Our Lives with their Emma Gonzales haircuts and I just lost it. Bawling! When Miley Cyrus sang “The Climb,” together these girls passionately signed the song together, and I lost it again. These kids were born in the shadows of Columbine and 9/11 and have never known the safe world my fellow Generation X-ers grew up in. They’re not snowflakes. THEY’RE WARRIORS. I am so profoundly PROUD of this generation. This is so personal for me, because these girls represent ALL of my students. I taught this generation. Yes, this is our future. In between them here holding the sign is my badass friend Elsa who co-founded the group to which I belong, Educators Against Gun Violence, the passionate group of educators who helped me get my own ass off the couch and to Washington, D.C. to stand with the generation that will save us all. Elsa didn’t let the communication barrier stop her from telling these girls how much they meant to us, and I’m so grateful to her for that. ❤️ This IS the generation that will save us. Borrowing words from President Obama to the Parkland students, I also say to this generation: We’ve been waiting for you. And we’ve got your backs. #whyimarch #emma4change #armmewith #enough #notonemore

Our students are more important.

We became teachers for good reasons.

Let us do what we’re trained to do.

This is the only glock we want in the classroom.

Powerpoints and guns shouldn’t need to be compared.

“Survival” shouldn’t be in question.

Enough…

…is enough…

…is enough!!

Do something.

DO SOMETHING.
