At this point in the school year, we all feel like we are hitting our stride: we’re getting to know our students, new colleagues and schedules. We’re setting the tone and establishing the routines that will successfully carry us through the year.

We’re also gearing up for a very busy season. One of the most important parts of our year at NJEA is the annual NJEA Convention, which we hope you will attend, either in-person or virtually. The convention helps you stay current with your professional development, network with educators who share your job titles or your areas of interest, and provides an opportunity to connect with people who understand and value the work you do and are committed to helping you make the most of your career.

Additionally, NJEA is extremely focused on one of the most important elections for educators and their families and the students we serve: the reelection of Gov. Phil Murphy. Despite all the challenges that we have faced, Gov. Murphy has been a staunch ally for educators and our students. In an unpredictable time, we have benefited from having a calm, reasonable, seasoned and strong ally in the governor. We may not always agree, but Gov. Murphy has always been willing to listen to our point of view.

The goal of our union is to provide members with the resources, information, advocacy, and support you need to succeed in all areas of your life. Our union is strong because of you and the work you do every day. We are very proud to represent your interests at the bargaining table, in the Statehouse, the classroom, and worksites across the state.

Thank you for the work that you do; let’s keep the momentum going!

In solidarity,
