So exciting! IEA member Allison Gordon chronicles her recent experience as a first-time delegate to the NEA Representative Assembly.


Hawaii State Teachers Association

Here are links to six GoFundMe efforts on behalf of eight public school teachers -- two of them married couples -- who have lost homes because of the lava flows on Hawaii Island. They include some heartbreaking before and after photos of their homes, plus pictures of their families (ohana) in happier times.

This family’s home of 27 years was destroyed. Both parents are educators.

A woman who spent ten years teaching at Pahoa High and Intermediate built herself a modest home. Now it’s gone.

This family’s inn was destroyed and their home is surrounded by lava.

One victim is the mother of two children and a recent widow.

There's a husband and wife teaching duo who moved to Hawaii from the St. Louis area just two years ago.

A special education teacher home is surrounded and completely inaccessible because of the lava.


She was an amazing speaker and is an amazing educator.

It takes a village to educate students. 🏆 Meet this year's Education Support Professional of the Year:


First day at the NEA's RA 2018! So many amazing speakers!

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren

When I was in second grade, Mrs. Lee told me that I could be a teacher when I grew up. I was so excited I couldn’t wait – so I lined up my dolls and taught them how to read. When I was done with school, I became a teacher and then a United States Senator – in no small part because Mrs. Lee made me feel like I could do anything. Teachers are teaching our future, and they deserve our respect and support. #ThankATeacher #TeacherAppreciationWeek
