Transformative act: Being a visibly supportive educator for LGBTQ students. Share the value of inclusion in your classrooms, share pronouns, share LGBTQ representation in curriculum, share visible signs of support (stickers, lanyards). -@EByard #TEACH19 @AFTteach @GLSEN

We thought we'd go ahead and point this out one more time, but it's summertime and beautiful outside in DC, and 1000s of teachers from across the U.S. are inside for three days, learning of ways to excel at their craft: teaching kids. #teach19 #PD conference
How do we reach all students? Radical proposal: reach the hearts & souls of people nationwide & redefine what our work in education means. By revitalizing our profession & addressing the trauma of our profession being undervalued, students benefit!—@chrisemdin #TEACH19 @AFTteach
At #Teach19, @rweingarten rallies us to use our voices to fight for
✅Well-funded Public Schools
✅Affordable Higher Ed
✅Healthcare for All

Saw this sign at #TEACH19 & had to check out the American Association of School Librarians 2018 Best App for Teaching & Learning called Engaging Congress. It’s free! Gotta love @AFTteach. @AFTunion #NYSUTwomen @NYSUTWomensComm

Headed to Washington DC for the @AFTunion #TEACH19 (Together Educating America's Children) Conference representing the Southwest Suburban Federation of Teachers Local 943!
