Our fight to thrive is about creating respectful working conditions with more planning time, fewer added duties and extra paperwork, resources to prevent burnout before it starts, and a defined workday that doesn’t require us to sacrifice our personal lives for our jobs. Our union’s professional development and advocacy programs help members create a school culture that allows both employees and students to thrive. Join today.

FREE Webinar: Survival Guide for Educators

No matter how great the preparation program is, the minute you become a “real teacher” lots of theory goes out the window in favor of “real life” practical advice that helps you navigate the complexities of being a new teacher.

Our free 2023 Share My Lesson webinar will help new teachers and their mentors consider important topics like institutional knowledge, handling conflict, social media, unions, and how to keep all the balls in the air!
