Episode 4 – Advocacy 101
Part of being a good teacher is being an advocate for yourself, your students, and your school. But sometimes, it’s hard to know just where to start.
Angela Scioli (Red4Ed Founder, NCTVN Fellow), Jessica Benton (NCAE, Organize 2020), and Trey Ferguson (WCPSS Beginning Teacher Network Co-Founder, NCTVN Fellow) talk about their organizations and some of the best ways teachers can advocate for themselves, their students, their schools, and their communities.
