Thoughts

What I learned about UEA that surprised me:

The incredible amount of time and work that members dedicate to our Association in the interest of supporting colleagues and making our profession better. The intensity, care, 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 make Utah schools better for students AND teachers - 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:
