What I learned about UEA that surprised me:

"It is amazing to witness how passionate and dedicated teachers are when it comes to public education."

What I value most about the Association:

I value UEA's mission statement: " advance the cause of public education in partnership with others: strengthen the teaching profession, promote quality schools for Utah's children and advocate the well-being of members."

How members might begin to be more active:

"It's essential for members and nonmembers to do research on their professional association in order to be informed."
