We got some attention in the press.

VP Kennon was interviewed and so was I.

 

We had a very slow year in 20015-16 Lets get off to a better start in 16-17 and in January we can talk about revisiting the question of a conference.

 

Please send you dues to Linda who still serves as our Sec-Treas, web master and all around stalwart!

 

Linda please put the link to the story on our web site.

Hi Jim, 

 

Sorry I didn’t respond to this sooner! Here’s a link to the story: http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2016/aug/15/teacher-absences/

 

I originally included information from you but my editor had to make some cuts to fit it in the paper. NSTA vice president Kennon Raines is still in there though. Feel free to share the story with anyone interested! 

 

Thanks again for your help, 

Lauryn

I'm on the East Coast so I'll call you around noon my time, the normal start of your business day.

Hi Jim, 

 

My name is Lauryn Schroeder and I’m a reporter for the San Diego Union-Tribune. I’m working on a story about the U.S. Department of Education’s latest data on school districts nationwide, in particular, teacher absences. 

 

I’m hoping to speak with you, or someone from the NSTA, about how a high rate of teacher absences impacts substitute teachers. Maybe get some insight on what it’s like for substitutes when they enter a class, required qualifications to be a sub, average salaries, etc.

 

My deadline is Thursday end of day, so realistically, I’d need to talk to someone today, tomorrow or Thursday morning at the latest. Does that work? Let me know when you have the chance and I look forward to speaking with you further!

 

Best, 
Lauryn
