DEADLINE EXTENDED TO APRIL 7!
Last year, the Newark Teachers Union recognized 14 members who were nominated by their peers to be recognized for their service for the students and community of Newark.
Who are these members? They’re the ones who when you’re putting up a bulletin board stop and help you cutting into their own lunch period. They’re the ones who ask staff centric questions at staff meetings and get away with it because they’re knowledgeable and respected by colleagues and administration alike.

On Wednesday, May 19, 2016, the NTU held our 18th Annual Hall of Fame Dinner. It was our most successful Hall of Fame Dinner yet! We had close to 300 attendees and raised $50,000 for scholarships for our members, their children, and the students of Newark!
For the first time, we also had the NTU Member Recognition Awards, where 14 members were recognized for their contributions to Newark's students, school staff, and community.
And we inducted Thomasina Lemon into the NTU Hall of Fame!
During this bleak period in American public education history where educators are beset on all sides by enemies and reminders of the War on Teachers, it is absolutely fitting that we take time to pat ourselves on the back. We do that this year by awarding our first Member Recognition Award.
The 18th Annual Albert Shanker Scholarship Awards are upon us. If you are a full member of the NTU, your son/daughter is eligible to apply. If you are a full member of the NTU and you are a Paraprofessional in our public school district who is currently attending college then you are eligible to apply. An application is enclosed.
