Political tempest over seventh grade social studies standards has a key lawmaker scapegoating teachers
Tennessee’s future teachers took school improvement into their own hands with a first annual service project at John Early Middle School in Nashville on Friday, Sept. 25.
“Student TEA members from every part of our state gathered at John Early Middle School to make over an outdoor classroom,” said STEA President Raymond Boyd. “While some people talk about improving teaching and learning conditions at schools, we’re doing something about it.”
Educators statewide stand to benefit from a summary judgment recently issued by the Chancery Court of Maury County reinforcing teachers’ rights under the Professional Educators Collaborative Conferencing Act.
TEA will host a Nashville Finance Camp Friday, September 28, at the TEA headquarters in Nashville. The professional development opportunity, with breakfast and lunch included, will cover the following topics:
* COLLABORATION with educators
* CONTENT to grow your knowledge
* CURATED resources for your class
* A CUSTOMIZED approach to meet your needs
TEA’s student affiliate STEA has once again been recognized among the top three student programs in the nation with the highest membership.
“We are extremely proud of our student members who go above and beyond their demanding school work load to grow professionally and mentor others as aspiring educators,” said Rhonda Thompson, STEA coordinator and member of TEA’s Instructional Advocacy staff.
