This Holiday Season, we at Long Island Teachers want to give thanks for things we all seem to take for granted. Good safe Public Schools and Careers that pay a living wage. A government that works when the people participate in the process and opportunities for all peoples to work towards a better life. With all the strife going on in our nation, this is what motivates us to stay positive and keep teaching! LongIslandTeachers.org, NYSUT Teachers! Teacher Leaders in the Community.
