    Thoughts

    What I value most about the Association:

    I have always believed that teachers have the responsibility to look out fro each other. Often I will say that if you know that another teacher is struggling, and you have the ability to help them, you have the moral responsibility to help them.

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

    Little steps. Involvement does not have to be a major undertaking. Look for small opportunities to get involved. That way you are building your understanding and abilities in the Association. If you treat your involvement like a gym membership, not a vending machine, you get so much more out of it.
