Member Recognition Application 2018-2019

Dear Colleagues,

At this year’s Hall of Fame, we are looking to honor ten members who go above and beyond in 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 Friday, March 29, 2019.  You can bring them to the NTU or email them to yesntu@newarkteachersunion.com with the subject header “Member Recognition Nominee.”  Nominess will be honored at the Hall of Fame  on Wednesday, May 15th which will be held at The Robert Treat Hotel, 50 Park Place, Newark, NJ at 6:30 p.m.

In Solidarity,

John M. Abeigon

President/Director of Organization
