A teacher's role is more than a job. Their daily responsibility is to educate Montana's future. It is not a duty that they take lightly. Parents entrust their children to them every day, communities are dependent upon their work's outcome, and our state relies on their efforts to produce citizens who are engaged and can think critically.
As a retired member of MEA-MFT and former high school English Teacher, I will champion the work that teachers do in the classroom and make certain that teachers' work is valued, respected, and rewarded.
