NJEA Secretary-Treasurer Sean M. Spiller appeared on “One on One with Steve Adubato” to discuss current issues in education and politics and why he became a high school science teacher.

Spiller, who was interviewed at the 2016 NJEA Convention, described his path to becoming an educator, and why educators persist, despite growing challenges in the profession.

He was critical of politicians who use rhetoric to attack, and not resolve issues.

“When you demean more than you debate, that’s a problem,” Spiller said.

He explained how NJEA is made up of the educators who make New Jersey’s public schools among the best in the nation, and that you cannot divide the organization from the members since they are involved at every level.
