Greetings from Summer Con


Greetings from Williams College, site of the Massachusetts Teachers Association Summer Conference.  I’m truly enjoying this opportunity to meet other union leaders from across the state and get a feel for the new leadership of the MTA with President Barbara Madeloni.

I am frequently reminded of how lucky we are in Revere.  Yesterday I was in a workshop on Student Learning in Educator Evaluations, and although we are still working out some bumps in the new framework, we have every opportunity to make teachers voices heard. We have more great opportunities this year as we enter contract bargaining and work to make the Revere Educator Leader Board (RELB) a permanent part of our culture. Please get in touch with your ideas for contract improvement and feedback on district initiatives.

Last night’s Ed Talks by Nancy Barile and Mary Porter really showed off how fantastic Revere’s teachers are. Hopefully the recordings will make it to the MTA YouTube channel in the next day or two (Links in the previous post).

Enjoy the rest of your break,
