Thoughts

What I value most about the Association:

"The incredible amount of time and work that members dedicate to the Association in the interest of supporting colleagues and making our profession better. The intensity, dedication and genuine belief in what they are doing...it is staggering!"

What I value most about the Association:

"The absolute determination to represent members and to make Utah schools better for students AND teachers - the UEA doesn't compromise on ideals, and works in collaboration with so many others to make the vision a reality."

How members might begin to be more active in the Association:
