2017-2018 Focus Areas
In May 2017, TU discussed our focus areas for the coming school year: Hybrid Roles Policy Team, Teacher Voice in Writing, and Legislative Contact. We are always looking for interested parties to be involved in our research, recommendation, and implementation of our policy work.
Hybrid Roles Policy Team: This team will begin work on September 28, 2017. The team will be collecting research, reading and analyzing research and making final recommendations on the future of hybrid roles in education. We look forward to hearing from the team. Anyone interested in working with the team can reach out to Hope Teague-Bowling at a TU event or through email.
Teacher Voice in Writing: Over the last year and half, TU has begun fostering and developing teacher voice beyond our policy implementation. Check out our blog that features original published pieces for Teachers United as well as reblog from our various TU members that have professional and personal blogs. If you're wanting to get involved in our writing, make sure to connect with Jamie Romberg at one of our TU events.
Legislative Contact Team: As our organization has developed over the last three years, we have always tried to develop our teacher voice and confidence in presenting to a variety of audience. Our legislative contact team is already hard at work facilitating conversations with policy makers from the School Board to the State Legislative level.
