Congratulations to NWPE member Emily Lockhart, 7th-8th grade math teacher at Pocatello Community Charter School.  Ms. Lockhart, a two year member of NWPE, received a $500 grant to purchase math games and materials to increase the mathematical fluency of her students.  It is this type of support that Ms. Lockhart appreciates about NWPE.  “I chose to become an NWPE member because I like the resources available. It makes me feel safer in my job to know that I have legal support if need be. I also like having a voice in educational topics in the political sphere. I was happy to hear that NWPE was an option. The local union has not always been supportive of charter schools and I’m not sure that their decisions are always in my best interest. I’m proud to work at a charter school where families can choose to expose their children to different ways of learning and I think that this choice enhances the Pocatello Community.”

Choice.  Sounds nice, right?  That’s why New Classroom Start Up Grant winner Tiffany Jessen, a second grade teacher at Centennial Elementary in Nampa, ID, joined NWPE.  “My primary reason for joining NWPE was choice. I didn't want my money to go towards politics that I did not agree with. I also appreciate NWPE’s much lower cost. As a new teacher, I don't make much money and much of it has gone to setting up my classroom.   I have appreciated having a choice because I feel that my money should go where my values go. Though I understand that education is political, I don't feel that our union should support political candidates.”
