Members attended this professional development in January. Here are some of their key takeaways:
Jeff West: "We learned how to begin and sustain union engagement at the local level. Participants also were given an opportunity to meet other active members in other local teachers' unions."
Chelsea Kilzer: "I learned how I can be more involved in the protection of my rights as a public educator while also making sure that every student has access to FAPE."
Tiffany Stellhorn: "When we want change, we need numbers backing the idea. In order to get the numbers, we need to track involvement. We gained ideas on how to ensure information gets out to the membership and how to have difficult conversations with each other about changes individuals want for the upcoming contract."
