“I’m just one little old lady who said ‘hey, this isn’t right.’”
September is Sepsis Awareness Month, and as part of a campaign to educate people about the condition, the Rory Staunton Foundation held its second annual National Forum in Washington, D.C. The AFT is part of the awareness effort.
A new AFT report finds that teacher development and evaluation systems that are co-designed by teachers; based on agreed-upon teaching standards; assessed in multiple ways; and supported with ongoing training for teachers and evaluators alike are an effective strategy for teachers, administrators and students.
Portland Federation of School Professionals', local 111, organizing campaign reached an all-time high last week when their new member numbers hit one hundred and eleven - or 111! The same as their Local's number!
They quickly passed that goal, and are now at 118!
They have never had so many new members. All of this has been accomplished in just six months. Their hard work is certainly paying off.
Congratulations, Portland Federation of School Professionals!
