                 President's Message:

Unity & Thank You    

    As 2015 comes to a close, I wanted to reflect on what a great first half of the school year we have had together in YCEA. I can't thank you enough for making our YCEA Roundup such a fun event with hundreds of you showing up with your families. It definitely started the year on a positive note. Since then, we have passed a resolution and action plan to support the students, staff and parents of Valley Elementary School. Your efforts so far help to remind all YCEA members that we are here to support each other, to lift up our profession, and to address concerns in a productive and collaborative way. Thank you.

  Negotiations have just started this week in December, so look for updates in the coming months on our progress. In response to our negotiations survey, we have around two dozen proposed items on the table this year, and we will work hard on your behalf.

    Going forward into 2016, we plan to continue to foster unity and to advocate strongly on behalf of all of our members and our students. Look forward to a New Teacher Social for all probationary year 1 and year 2 members in January, a social/retirement info event in the spring targeting members who have 15+ years in our profession, a YCEA Day of the Teacher (for all members) gift and thank you, as well as our annual Retirement Dinner in May.

    Thank you for all that you do! And thank you for being a member.

In Unity,

Christopher Brunette
