I had a great opportunity to hang out with some amazing educators at an NEA conference in Chicago last weekend. We gathered to be trained in a variety of topics and represented states from coast to coast. This very diverse group of participants shared so many wonderful and touching stories regarding their efforts to help students be successful that I was truly inspired.
During this Union event, there was little talk about politics or organizing, but rather sessions that dove deep into improving professional practice with the end goal of positively impacting students.
It was very refreshing to be reminded of yet another valuable opportunity/avenue that membership affords.
Keep doing great things!
