This year, the NTU’s Hall of Fame inductees are “THE MEMBERS OF THE NTU.” After everything we have suffered under state control, we felt strongly that it was important to take a moment and celebrate the hard work and dedication of each and every NTU Member.
As we have done in the last few years, we are taking nominations to recognize NTU members that go above and beyond in improving education, the school, and the community.
Who are these members? They’re the ones who stop and help you put up a bulletin board, 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.
They bring you a Snickers bar when you’re down and don’t bust your chops about why. They offer to car pool to union meetings and buy the first round at the restaurant waiting for the School Advisory Board meeting to begin.
I used to love a certain Art Teacher at my first school. Every school develops a family, and at that school he was the grandfather. Even at the end of the day, when we were all drained, he would have us doing jumping jacks at a faculty meeting just to pump up the energy. In a community with very few males and even fewer grandfathers, this guy was everyone’s go-to abuelo.
So go ahead and take a look around your building, who’s that member we should recognize? If you would like to nominate someone, please fill out the attached application
Completed nomination forms must be received at the NTU office by Monday, April 9, 2018.
