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.
Pennsylvania’s public schools should be the safest and healthiest places for students to learn and grow. To make sure they are, we need the most qualified teachers, teaching assistants, school nurses, counselors, psychologists, and social workers.
PSEA is committed to making changes aimed at protecting everyone who works and learns in our schools.
The Penn Hills Education Association is profoundly saddened and shares the grief of the entire Penn Hills community at the unexpected and tragic death of Penn Hills math teacher Don Babbit. Don was an excellent teacher, having earned the 2018-2019 Teacher of the Year Award for the high school, and an incredibly well-respected and beloved member of the high school staff.
“I think we’re all just in a state of shock right now at this devastating loss. The kids loved him, and our teachers loved working with him,” said Rodlyn Checcio, PHEA President.
Grief counselors will be on site in the High School cafeteria Aug. 8 and 9, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for any student, staff, or community member who may need to talk. Reverend Jay Mitlo, Pastor at Faith Community Church and a Penn Hills graduate, will also be on site Friday to offer additional support.
