Dear Association Colleagues—
Another welcome back! And I, like so many others who have welcomed you, hope you are returning, or continuing, renewed and refreshed after the short summer of 2015!
Whether you are a newly certified teacher, a returning security officer, or a veteran secretary, you will know, or will find out, that Pittsgrove is a great place to be If you are just arriving, or returning for the fourteenth year, know there are many, many of us who come here and stay here for years—10, 15, 30 or longer! We know it is a wonderful place to work—to be part of this experience is a marvelous experience and it shows in every one of us.
As always, the Association is here to serve you, its members. Form forms to classroom management tips, ask and we will do our best to help you! Visit the PEA website and Facebook page for information on topics about work, advocating for yourself and others, and continuing education and training opportunities.
Actions, however, speak louder than words—and sometimes it is your actions that are needed. Please read materials we send/post, listen to our speakers and representatives, and step up when we ask you to do so. And, if you ever have any questions about a new topic in education or information you have heard “through the grapevine”, see one of your building representatives or officers—if they don’t know the answer, they know someone who can find it!
In closing, it is an honor and a pleasure to serve as your president. Have a spectacular year!
