Why I Joined OEA-Retired
Being involved in OEA-Retired has allowed me to be an insured substitute, reap the rewards of NEA Member Benefits, renew friendships made as an OEA member, and make many new friends.
— Janet Jackson
I was very involved in OEA as a classroom teacher. Once retired I wanted to continue working for education issues. OEA-Retired is a way for me to stay involved.
— Carolyn Vandiver
I joined OEA-Retired because I wanted to be informed about education and retired issues. A bonus has been the friendships that I have developed.
— Kathryn Warrior
