On Thursday, February 13th at 5:30 p.m. the Pasco Young Educators are kicking off their exciting new group with a social at the World of Beer, 2081 Collier Parkway, in Land Oâ€™ Lakes.
Â The new group consists of teachers and School Related Professionals under the age of 40 who want to empower young educators to become politically aware and socially active.
Â The group is spearheaded by three Pasco teachers and USEP members who attended a statewide Young Educators conference to address the needs of younger education employees entering the profession.
Â â€œWe want to build capacity and raise awareness among young employees to ensure contractual rights into our future,â€ said Nakita Gillespie.
Â Â â€œWe want to build a network that provides opportunities for school employees to relate to others.Â Building our professional organization now will provide strength and security to our profession in the future!â€ added Elizabeth Beck.
Â Encourage young educators to attend and RSVP via Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pasco-Young-Educators/1476146879279602
