WEA Leaders Serve Breakfast to New Teachers

This morning the WEA leadership and building reps served breakfast to most of the 98 new teachers starting school in Weber School District. The enthusiasm was contagious and the smiles on the new teachers' faces shown as bright as the hot morning sun. Marlene Irons (WEA President) and Terie Maxfield (WEA VP and UEA Board Member) welcomed the new teachers to the district and gave them information on the association. Later the association reps received membership information and tips on advocacy.

OEA met with their new teachers yesterday and President Doug Stephens gave them reasons for being a member of the OEA. Ogden has hired 79 new teachers this year.

Our membership campaign will continue throughout the year.

Thanks Rick
