    Help PAT Engage!

    The goal of the Engage! project is to have a face-to-face, one-on-one conversation with every one of our members, to learn what‘s working in our schools and what’s getting in the way of teaching and learning. Sign up here to volunteer to be a listener.

    This fall, we need enough volunteers to get to every school site we didn't visit last year. We need your help to make this possible!

    Please volunteer on an upcoming Friday to take a day away from your classroom to talk to teachers in another school. OEA will pay for your sub, and volunteers have described their experience as being “invigorating and enlightening.”

    You can see where we plan to be each week when you click on the link above.
