We all know that education isn’t a job—it’s a calling. So when it’s time to walk away from your classroom, your bus, your library or your lunch room, what’s next? How do you stay involved in this field you love? The answer: WEA Retired.
WEA Retired is a group of retired education employees with big ideas and lots of talent, experience and heart left to give to advocating for Wyoming’s kids.
WEA Retired engages with lawmakers and raises funds for political action. We mentor early career educators. As a board member, I bring the voice of WEA Retired members into the conversations that shape WEA’s path toward achieving its mission and vision. We are a conduit for conversations, connection and the ability to continue to evoke real, positive change in public education in communities across our great state.
For a one-time fee, WEA members can secure a lifetime membership in WEA Retired. When you join, you open a world of possibilities for getting involved in shaping the path forward for Wyoming public education. You join a tight-knit community of educators and friends, and you maintain access to NEA Member Benefits that help you live your best retirement.
I’m proud to serve as your President and humbled to be in a position to answer your questions and share with you the great work we are doing. Call or text me anytime to learn more about what it means to become a WEA Retired member.
