NJEA airs new PRIDE TV ad campaign

Published on Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Three new PRIDE in Public Education TV ads will begin airing on Dec. 12, featuring members from the ranks of teachers and Education Support Professionals (ESP).

The 30-second ads will air on New York and Philadelphia broadcast stations and on cable networks throughout New Jersey, and address a number of topics of interest for parents and the public.

Education reform and teacher quality are the subjects that NJEA member Tina Yorke talks about from her classroom at Ardena Elementary School in Farmingdale. (Above)

Science teachers Heather Frank-Goffe and Vernon Henry, who work at Paterson’s Harp Academy, talk about the importance of science instruction for today’s students, while crediting NJEA’s Center for Teaching and Learning for fostering science education in New Jersey.

When Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, NJEA members across the state went right to work helping their neighbors.  NJEA member Brian Currie, a maintenance mechanic in Buena, talks about how his fellow ESP members pitched in to provide food, clothing, shelter, and comfort to their community.  

The spots will air for the next two weeks, and after a holiday hiatus, will return in early 2013 for another run.
