#WeAreCTA News

My sincere thanks to everyone who made the CA leg of my #NEAJusticeJoyTour so memorable and full of learning—especially my colleagues from @WeAreCTA, @UTLAnow and @OaklandEA. I’m headed into next week’s tour inspired and excited by the vital work of our CA educators and students!

I’m spending Saturday morning at Prescott School’s BBQ and garden workday with @OaklandEA colleagues, like Kampala Taiz-Rancifer here! I’m enjoying learning more about this historic school and their work for education justice—and the success of their garden. #NEAJusticeJoyTour

It was a dynamic week of union business with CTA Summer Institute & CTA Human Rights Cadre Training.

Unions help with professional growth. Unions help with personal growth.
Unions help with societal growth.

“Now more than ever, [I’m going to have] morning meetings, check-ins, circles, to talk about how students are feeling,” said @OaklandEA member Mayra Alvarado. “So students know that I’m here for them, and that we as a community are there for each other.” #WeAreCTA #InThisTogether

40% of educators with unpaid student loan debt said it impacted their mental, emotional, and/or physical well-being.

This system is working for the student loan providers and banks, but not for us. #CancelStudentDebt https://bit.ly/3l1gpoV

More than 800 educators spent this week sharpening their skills and learning new ones at CTA Summer Institute, which provides educators with a robust toolbox to build power, fight for students and advocate for public education. #WeAreCTA #CTASI https://www.cta.org/educator/posts/strength-through-knowledge

This morning’s #NEAJusticeJoyTour stop is at Leola Havard Early Education School, renamed one decade ago to honor the first African American female school principal in San Francisco’s unified School district!
