Stand up for future teachers!
There is a new certification process in New York state - including three new exams. Have you taken the EAS, ALST or the edTPA? Do you work with or stand in support of someone who has?
We are calling on students, parents, faculty, staff and others who stand in support of future teachers. Tell us about your experience with these exams and with the new certification processes (for example, testing site issues, taking computer based tests, using the TEACH portal, completing required workshops, etc).
To advocate for change, NYSUT will share your letters with SED Commissioner MaryEllen Elia, members of the Board of Regents and state legislators.
Your personal story is the most effective message. Use your own words to describe your experiences and recommend solutions.
