Letter From the President
As the snow comes down, I am reminded that each flake is unique… just like the students we serve each and every day. My name is Stephanie Myers and I am the BEA President. Thank you for your patience, support, and care in the job you do. The Boise School District and the Boise Education Association are lucky to have you!
National ESP Day is Wednesday, November 19th… congratulations! We, as teachers, know the importance of every paraprofessional, tutor, food service, bus driver, administrative assistant, custodian, and facilities employee. Thank you!
Please consider becoming an active member of the BEA! We have committees, activities, and meetings where your experience and voice can be a vital part of the Association. Stand together, stand up and speak up for public education!
Have a wonderful holiday season!
