The Indian Prairie Education Association (IPEA) is a professional organization of over 2,000 teachers in Indian Prairie School District 204 serving the Aurora, Naperville, and Bolingbrook areas. Our collective mission is to make sure Indian Prairie’s schools are a place of hope, academic success and growth for all students.
First of all, I would like to say thank you for the tremendous work you have been doing and continue to do on behalf of the students of District 204. Under the best of conditions, teaching on a normal day is not easy, and given these crazy times, you have handled the pressure with grace.
When I assumed the President position in September, I told the Senators/RAs that it was an honor and privilege to represent the teachers of 204. It is an honor and privilege because I am who I am today because of the education I received from 204, and the relationships teachers fostered with me. The students may not be having the same classroom experience, but students will always remember your great, positive influence during this unprecedented time.
In the next few weeks, keep focusing on building relationships with students. This is at the heart of what we do as educators and IPEA members. And just as importantly, take care of one another and yourselves so that we are able to be a supportive force in our students’ lives.
Stay safe and take care
