PSEA is a community of education professionals who make a difference in the lives of students every day.
Emily Nell came back to teach art and make an impact after spending 14 years as an independent artist working in schools and holding benefit auctions.
Pennsylvania’s public schools should be the safest and healthiest places for students to learn and grow.
PSEA is committed to making changes aimed at protecting everyone who works and learns in our schools.
When it became available in 2001, the Google Earth app became a big hit – letting users zoom in from outer space to where they live.
But Debra Hervitz, a retired reading specialist and elementary teacher in the Harrisburg School District, Dauphin County, had already been there and done that with her students.
Hervitz, a member of Capital Area PSEA-Retired, started using a similar concept in 1998 to teach young students about their local geography. Now, she has put the teaching method into a children’s book, “Where I Live, A first geography book for young children in the State of Pennsylvania,’’ that uses the Google Earth template. The state Capitol and The State Museum of Pennsylvania are among the places where it is on sale.
