Upcoming Contract Actions

Use Your Teacher Voice

Every voice matters—including yours. No-one can tell your story or your school’s story like you can. Send the CTU a brief (15-30 second) video about what your classroom and school needs, and what your students could achieve if those needs were met. We’re composing an anthem—and every voice lifted and singing this tune amplifies our mighty chorus.

Tell us your name, your position and your school. Tell us what you, your school and your students lack that we’re fighting for in the contract. Tell us what a difference it would make to students if they had what they need.

We recommend that you practice what you’ll say before recording the video. Have a colleague shoot the video with the phone turned sideways (landscape mode). Avoid back lighting: don’t have bright or outdoor lighting behind you. If you show yourself from the waist or shoulders up and stand with a favorite part of your classroom or work area behind you, these finer touches make for an easy, high-quality video.
