Once again, we welcome you back to a new school year. For our newest arrivals, we want to give you a special welcome. You are now an integral part of a great district with an excellent staff from top to bottom. Your experienced colleagues are outstanding resources and we encourage you to rely on them for their wisdom, support, and encouragement.
We also welcome you to the WOEA, which is YOUR professional representative. In each building, there are reps who can guide you and help you when you have questions. Our relationship with administration is collegial, courteous and professional, but as in every relationship, there are times when there are misunderstandings or disagreements. WOEA is here to help you navigate these waters in the most productive ways.
WOEA also provides, through our own efforts or through our collaborations with ECEA and NJEA, many professional development opportunities. We will forward descriptions of these workshops and dates when they become available.
WOEA will also be sponsoring a number of social opportunities throughout the year, at which all members are welcome. Stay tuned for details.
We will be sending emails updating our members on these opportunities as they approach. Although many of our communications will be through the WOBOE server, there may be some that are more appropriately sent to your private accounts. This is especially true when we need to communicate concerning negotiations or political issues. To that end, we ask that WOEA members take a moment to provide some contact information by clicking the following link: CLICK HERE
Again, welcome to the newcomers and welcome back to the veterans! We look forward to a productive and positive year.
Mark Maniscalco, President, WOEA
Stacie Varanelli, Vice President
Denise Keastead, VP/Treasurer
