“I am an AEA member because advocacy is important, and AEA continuously advocates for students and educators. Until I became an AEA member, I did not realize all of the different ways that we can advocate for our students and schools. It is empowering to be a greater part of that process.”
Quote by: Kareem Neal, 2019 Arizona Teacher of the Year, 2022 National Teachers Hall of Fame, and Phoenix Union High School District Classroom Teachers Association member.
