Today, I am grateful to be able to be an active member of our teachers Union.
I believe in the power of collectively coming together with my colleagues to advocate for our working conditions, benefits and compensation.
Tonight, I was able to attend a training that was focused around preparing us presenters to do good work for the professional development summit called Unbreakable Solidarity. I was able to meet with other educators from around the Valley and become more knowledgeable about how to create positive learning opportunities in our presentation.
Finding colleagues that are like-minded and passionate about advocating for our public schools has allowed me to build relationships and find ways to do work that I am passionate about.
What we have in our public schools is not magic.
Hundreds and thousands of people are working very hard to provide the best possible environments for students to learn.
I am happy and committed to doing my part to make sure public education is advocated for locally, state-wide and nationally!
