happy new year

Are you ready to turn the page on 2020?

A deadly global pandemic. Unprecedented challenges in the workplace and at home. A critical election season that, in many ways, is still dragging on!

It was a challenging, heart-breaking, and tragic year for so many of us, but I can’t help but look back with pride and appreciation for the heroic efforts of you and your colleagues throughout the year.


Let me take just a moment to say THANK YOU.

Thank you for your passion.

Thank you for your courage.

And thank you for your dedication.

You are the heroes of 2020, and thanks to you there is hope for a better 2021 for all of us!

The new year offers us an opportunity for better things, including a renaissance of public education and a revitalized economy that works for everyone, with opportunity, fairness, and justice for all.

For today, though, we wish you a happy New Year...with hope for a better 2021!

In solidarity,

Andrew Pallotta,
NYSUT President
