Words from the Prez - Sept. 2017

posted Sep 13, 2017, 1:02 PM by Bartlesville Teacher

Welcome back to another school year! I hope your year is off to a great start.

Thank you for choosing to be part of BEA/OEA. I joined when I moved to Oklahoma 20 years ago because I strongly believed in our organization's mission "To advocate for education professionals and to unit our members and the people of Oklahoma to fulfill the promise of public education to prepare every student to succeed in a diverse and interdependent world".  We must stand united and fight for our profession and our students. 

I'm looking forward to working with you this school year. Feel free to contact me with questions or concerns and please consider joining us for our monthly representative meetings on the third Wednesday of each month.

Words from the Prez for April 2017

April = Testing. I don’t like it any more than you do, but it is what it is. I know that at this time more than any other you also are feeling tested. Teachers in our state are feeling tested
by the lack of respect the state government gives us, our profession, and our students. It is time to test our senators and representatives! It’s time to hold them accountable. 

There will be a forum this week. PEAK is holding a public education forum at Bartlesville City Hall (401 S. Johnstone) Friday evening, April 21st from 6:30 – 7:30. Representatives Sears and Dunlap as well as Senator Daniels will be there to listen to concerns and answer questions.

In addition, come to the BEA Rep Meeting on Wednesday, April 19th in the Madison Library from 4:15 – 5:15 to hear from our OEA president Alicia Priest.

Words from the Prez for February 2017

posted Feb 10, 2017, 2:45 PM by Bartlesville Teacher   [ updated Feb 10, 2017, 2:45 PM ]

Happy February! This month is all about love and honor. I know often these days that it is hard to feel loved and respected as an educator. Remember, part of who you are is due to the adults you’ve had in your lives, and I’m guessing at least one of those is a teacher. Many of those politicians in OKC and Washington D.C. have forgotten that. You are important, your job is important, you are loved and you make a difference! As we make our way through February, focus on your love for students, and your love of teaching.
