Words from the Prez for April 2017

posted Apr 18, 2017, 6:13 AM by Bartlesville Teacher   [ updated Apr 18, 2017, 6:14 AM ]

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.

Words from the Prez for January 2017

Welcome to 2017! 

I hope that your break was restful and that you feel renewed to tackle the new year. I know that this stretch can be difficult, but take time to be willing this month. 
  • Be willing to give your all every day to those children that depend on us. 
  • Be willing to extend extra care and understanding to your colleagues who may need it. 
  • Be willing to take time for yourself and to practice self-care. 
  • Finally, be willing….to wash your hands a lot, use hand sanitizer, and pop vitamin C like candy in this beginning of the flu season! 
Happy New Year!

Words from the Prez for November 2016

posted Nov 10, 2016, 11:44 AM by Bartlesville Teacher   [ updated Nov 10, 2016, 11:44 AM ]

Happy November!

This time of year makes me think of many things, but mainly thankfulness and gratitude. To me, gratitude helps us to see what is present instead of what is missing. Oftentimes, as educational professionals in Oklahoma, it is common for us to see what is missing: funding, not enough time, not enough supplies, energy for all the things that we need to complete. During this time of thanksgiving I encourage us all to be grateful for this amazing responsibility we have to educate, love, and care for each student. To be mentors, friends,
and cheerleaders for our co-workers is also extremely important.

Personally, I am grateful to all of our members for their support for our organization, our building reps and officers that work so hard to make sure you feel supported and heard, and my family who doesn’t mind the extra time and hours I spend working at school and for the BEA.

Hang in there, that wonderful week long Thanksgiving Break is just around the corner. Make sure to take time to be thankful for all of your blessings, and to take care of yourself to refresh and renew to finish out this semester strong.

Our next BEA meeting is Wednesday, November 16 at the Madison Library at 4:15.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Rachel Hough
BEA President
