THE STORY:

Over the past year I've been involved with the Young Professionals Board at 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. Each May, E4E extends Teacher Appreciation Week to an entire month long celebration to recognize the incredible work that happens in classrooms every day and the remarkable leadership of their members outside the classroom.

E4E is truly important to me, because E4E's model is founded on building a deep understanding of teachers and the issues they face in their classrooms. One of my close friends, Evan Stone, co-founded Educators 4 Excellence to provide a platform for teacher advocacy that works to respond to the specific needs of teachers and the children they serve. I believe reform must occur from inside any system by the people that know it best. 

In order to help appreciate and support the leadership of the 13,000 teachers across the country with whom E4E works, the Young Professionals Board has decided to throw a our very first fundraiser on June 18th, 2014. I would love for you to be there! During the fundraiser you will have the opportunity to meet with some of E4E’s teacher leaders, learn more about how E4E is working to solve some of the most pressing issues in education, and enjoy cocktails and light appetizers. It will be an inspiring night! Here are the details:

 

What: E4E’s Young Professionals Board Spring Fundraiser

When: Wednesday, June 18th, 2014, 6:00pm-9:00pm

Where: The Chester, 18 9th Avenue, New York, NY 10014

Why: Show your support for teacher leaders who are working hard to ensure the voices of classroom teachers are included in policy decisions that affect their classrooms and their profession. During the fundraiser you will have the opportunity to meet with some of E4E’s teacher leaders, learn more about how E4E is working to solve some of the most pressing issues in public education, and enjoy a two hour open bar and light appetizers.

Tickets: $60

**If you cannot attend the event, you can still make a donation at any amount of your choosing.

My goal is to raise $2500. Every ticket purchase/donation will help support teachers across the country.

 

Thanks so much for your support!

About Educators 4 Excellence (E4E)

For far too long, education policy has been created without a critical voice at the table- the voice of classroom teachers.

Educators 4 Excellence, a teacher-led organization, is changing this dynamic by placing the voices of teachers at the forefront of the conversations that share our classrooms and careers.

E4E has a quickly growing national network of educators united by our Declaration of Teachers’ Principals and Beliefs. E4E members can learn about education policy and research, network with like-minded peers and policymakers, and take action advocating for teacher-created policies that lift student achievement and the teaching profession.
