"Teaching is my identity and my passion. Every day, I get to excite students about math, science, or any number of my hobbies and interests. I make connections, and get to make an impact on generations of students. I can't imagine a better career."
Christian Haich
Teacher at Polaris K-12
"NEA-Alaska stands for what I believe to be best practices for an organization, which include collective bargaining, truth, social justice and advocacy. Membership means those around me are speaking truth, and there is inclusion for all."
Rhiana Gay
Teacher at Creekside Park Elementary
"My NEA-Alaska membership helps me know that as a nonbinary person, I have NEAAlaska's support regarding my right to a safe and inclusive workplace. It is reassuring to know that I have access to legal counsel, should I ever run into discrimination issues because of my identity."
Heidi Herbert-Lovern
Music Teacher with ASD
