OEA PRESIDENT SCOTT DIMAURO'S WEEKLY ADDRESS

With Governor DeWine having acted to extend the closure of Ohio’s schools at least through May 1, this week’s update addresses implications of that decision on our members, students, and local unions.  I encourage you to watch, share, and send me your questions and stories.  Many thanks to our staff and leaders who continue to collect and share information to help us all navigate these uncharted waters.

 

Two resources I’ll highlight for you this week include a summary of education provisions in HB 197 passed last week and a recording of our Telephone Town Hall with Gov. DeWine and State Superintendent Paolo DeMaria from this past Friday.

 

A big shout-out to our very own Andrea Beeman, who has been recognized as the NEA Education Support Professional of the Year.  I’m proud of Andrea and of each and every one of you who have been working so hard to support your students and one another through this difficult time.  Please stay safe, stay healthy and stay home!

 

In solidarity,

Scott DiMauro

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

  • Christian Moore, MSW, LCW Author, The Resilience Breakthrough (@whytryprogram)

Resiliency is something we’re all born with: from the homeless person on the street to the Harvard business grad. Most of

us just haven’t learned how to tap into what’s already inside of us. In his presentation, Christian Moore draws on his work

as a learning disabled social worker from an inner-city neighborhood to help explain why some people are able to thrive

under any circumstances while others crumble from small challenges. He introduces audiences to four sources of resiliency

– street,relational, resources and rock bottom – and shows how anyone can “bounce back” by tapping into these sources.

  • Becky Pringle, Vice President, National Education Association (@NEAtoday)

Becky Pringle is vice president of the National Education Association, thenation’s largest labor union and professional

association for educators. A middle school science teacher with 31 years of classroom experience, Pringle has distinguished

herself as a thoughtful, passionate advocate for educators and students, focusing on issues of educator empowerment and

student success, diversity, and developing future leaders
