April Words from the Prez

Post date: Apr 14, 2010 11:01:06 PM

April is upon us and what a month! It is filled with testing, stress, testing, stress, and more stress. Do your best to stay as relaxed as possible and enjoy the rest of the year. My time as President is almost over. It has been a great year and I feel that we have accomplished a lot. We have worked hard as an organization to make things better for us and the students we teach. Thanks to everyone for their participation and input. I am excited about the great slate of officers coming up. I know next year will be fantastic. Our Negotiating team is coming together. We are getting prepared for our meeting with the Board’s team where we will be discussing some very important issues. See the article in the April BEA Line about the online bargaining survey. Please fill it out by April 21 to let us know what’s on your mind. This year we will be awarded two Golden Apple Awards by the OEA. The BEA Line, by Judy Allen and the Beaok.org website by Granger Meador has earned the BEA these awards. Thank you Judy and Granger! Congratulations go out to Shannon Willingham from Will Rogers. She was our March Hidden Member. Again, we thank Rib Crib for donating all of the gift certificates for this year. Please remember them when you are eating out.

Have a great April,
