Sharing educators' experience on the ground with students is an incredibly powerful tool while advocating to lawmakers for more school funding and school improvements. OEA shares (and hand-delivers to 90 lawmakers) one Featured Educator every day during legislative session. These stories make a HUGE impact.
These stories will be shared in the Capitol via email and hard copy, as well on OEA social media and website. All student names and identifying information will be changed to protect their privacy.
** we do not accept anonymous stories, because this project is about featuring educators and their experience **
While many of our featured educator stories will focus on funding and missing resources, we will also share stories focused on these additional areas. Please include any thoughts or experiences you have on these topics you have below!
- Equity and racial justice in education
- Class size and caseload
- School safety and gun violence in schools (including gun violence prevention, such as active shooter drills)
- Out of pocket costs to educators on school supplies, etc
- Restoring specialist positions like counselors/psychologists, nurses, librarians, and other important support staff

If you know of an educator who deserves to be featured, email us their contact information and a brief bit about why their story needs to be told. We'll follow up with them in-person.
