The Illinois Policy Institute, or IPI, is back and is using unethical ways to get your personal information so they can send you more LIES about your union. The union that gives us our powerful collective voice. The voice we use to advocate for our students, our schools and our community. The choice is clear: When the IPI comes calling, tell them #ImStickingWiththeUnion and that you’re #IEAProud because we’re #IEAstronger.

On Aug. 24, the Troy Education Association (TEA) held it’s first member family picnic at the Channahon Community Park in Channahon. Members enjoyed a great day with perfect weather. IEA and NEA Member Benefits information was shared and many members won prizes donated by local businesses. Another highlight of the afternoon was a discussion with Sen. Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant, D-Shorewood, regarding the concerns of our members and for the support of quality public schools.
To our TEA members, thank you for all you do every day for our students, schools and community!
