THE STORY:

Over the past 3 years I have been involved with Educators 4 Excellence (E4E) a non-profit that works to ensure the voices of classroom teachers are included in policy discussions that affect our students and our classrooms.

E4E has already had an enormous impact on my students, my school, and me. In the past year I was part of the policy team on Differentiated Compensation.  With the teamwork of 12 other teachers we were able to create policy recommendations that empower teachers to be leaders in their schools and communities while providing compensation for their tremendous work. This issue was important to me because great teachers leave the classroom every year due to low compensation.  Reimagining a compensation system where a district can attract, develop, and retain great talent will ultimately benefit our students and their achievement to and through college.

Through my research I was able to understand different models of compensation for teachers, realize we need to professionalize the profession, and develop my skills as a policy analyst. Not only were we able to create recommendations, but also we were able to advocate for our recommendations. I was able to give a professional development at my school to present the recommendations and get feedback. With the help of E4E, I have been able to hone in on my leadership skills to begin making the changes that will continue to drive student achievement.

#ThankaTeacher by donating to E4E. Your donation will support the leadership development and impact of teachers in Los Angeles by defraying the costs of grassroots organizing efforts, Teacher Leadership Program trainings, publishing Teacher Policy Team white papers, and supporting teacher advocacy of policies that are good for students. My goal is to raise $500. Every contribution will help support more teachers like me.

$25 helps E4E recruit, engage, and connect a new teacher member with policy and leadership opportunities
$50 helps E4E host school-based community events for teachers such as focus groups and listening sessions
$100 helps E4E organize large panel discussion events for teachers to meet with experts and policy makers through the E4E Networking and Event Series
$250 helps E4E members share their policy recommendations with key education decision-makers through the E4E Teacher Policy Team Program
$500 helps E4E provide teacher leadership training through the E4E Teacher Leadership Program

 

Thank you so much for your support!
