Our elected NEA National delegates spent the Fourth of July in Philadelphia for the annual convention attending to the business of public education. Pictured are Joaquin Cuni (NKCHS), Alicia Kleoppel (OPHS), Amanda Bearden (Northgate), Lisa Baldwin (Topping), Michelle Barbieri (NKCHS), Troy Fredde (Crestview), and Justin Smith (Maplewood/Topping).


Our mission as the clear and reliable united voice of educators is to empower, promote, advance, and protect public education and to advocate for the right of interest of students and our members.


A quality public school for every student and educator as defined by our belief in equal opportunity for students and educators, a just and democratic society, and the importance of collective action and partnerships with community members.
