PSEA is a community of education professionals who make a difference in the lives of students every day.
Phoenixville EA member John Odell is in his second successful career after 24 years with the Army.
PA’s minimum teacher salary ($18,500) hasn’t increased since 1988. PA's minimum wage ($7.25), hasn’t been raised since 2009, and is lower than all neighboring states.
PSEA is committed to making changes aimed at protecting everyone who works and learns in our schools.
Voice: July 2017
PSEA members know how important it is to encourage students to read. That’s why many local associations are working with Partners for Public Education to collect books for students who need them.
Partners and members of the PSEA Communications Committee are helping facilitate book drives this fall by providing materials and assistance to locals. Their goal is to see book drives in every PSEA region.
Planning a book drive?
If your local would like to hold a book drive this fall, you can find sample fliers and other resources, including applications for small grants from the PSEA Education Foundation, at www.psea.org/bookdrives.
Book drives should be designed around the needs of the families in the communities where they are held. Book collections may focus on books for specific age groups, such as Pre-K or school-age children, or focus on a theme, such as health and wellness or preserving the environment.
Partners for Public Education is committed to providing resources to parents and educators to help children of all ages become better readers.
