Behind Every Great Student is a Great Public School Teacher
“Behind Every Great Student is a Great Public School Teacher” is the theme of a public relations campaign the Kansas National Education Association (KNEA) kicked off December 1. Find the TV spots here and on KNEA’s Facebook page (Be sure to "like" us on Facebook!).
“The goal is to highlight the excellent work of our students and the exemplary teaching in classrooms all across Kansas,” said KNEA President Blake West. “As teachers, we see our classrooms filled with students who hold the promise to be the next Steve Hawley, Velma Wallace, Dwight D. Eisenhower.... We are committed to seeing our students succeed... and to making public schools great for every child.”
The television and radio spots highlight different professions and Kansas towns. The TV campaign is paid for through a grant from the National Education Association and is done in conjunction with the Kansas Association of Broadcasters.
TELL US YOUR STORY!
As part of this campaign, KNEA is collecting stories of outstanding teaching and learning. Stories can be provided in writing or video. Students and teachers: tell us your story here. If submitting a video, send a link to firstname.lastname@example.org or tag Kansas NEA.
KNEA will highlight the top teacher and student stories starting in February. Note: See below for a poster inviting students to share stories. The poster is available through KNEA UniServ Offices and KNEA Communications.
