We are committed to providing educators with the protection, advocacy and resources that will help them be successful in the classroom. As we enter the holidays, it reminds us to be thankful for people and blessings that we enjoy. We are reminded that education is a gateway to the future, and educators are the guardians to the very future of this great nation. We are grateful for our members who continue to rise up and meet the increased challenges facing public education. We are blessed by the fact you have chosen our organization to meet your professional needs. We believe the best is yet to come, and we wish you the warmest of holiday wishes and a prosperous and less stressful 2014.
