Happy New Year, everyone! I thought some of you might be interested in teaching your expertise or sharing them with students who are interested to be good at what you do. Just found this one...
Right now we're focused on building a community and making it as big as possible, so that educator extraordinaires (like you) have a great place to let people know your expertise and potential students of all ages have a place to find people who teach them.
You can post multiple profiles, one for every discipline you are good at and are willing to each. So if someone teaches both fitness and academics, or photography and athletics they could post two profiles or more. Also, you can differentiate yourself by price, skills, education, and more. Creating a profile is very fast, easy, and convenient! It involves 4 pages that take about 5 minutes total to complete. When you create a profile you get to reflect on why it is you love teaching your particular field of interest. You can also post documents, photos, videos, and audio files to enhance your profiles.
I firmly believe that this would be a great opportunity for you to spread your expertise the
21st Century way! Please let me know if you have any questions.

You received a communication this morning from Erich Martel announcin a debate between President Saunders and myself to take place at McKinley HS today. Subsequently you received an "Alert" from Nathan Saunders indicating that no debate would be happening. It is true that because only one candidate was willing to debate, the debate will not happen. But let me correct factual errors in Mr. Saunders "Alert" email.
The debate was an initiative of the school WTU Representatives at Wilson and McKinley High Schools and Lafayette Elementary. They had reserved the space at McKinley. Mr. David Pinder’, the principal at McKinley, sent me the email below confirming use of the auditorium. The email is also copied to Mr. Bruce Stevens, his head custodian. No one ever represented the debate as being formerly sponsored by the WTU leadership, the election committee, or inappropriately used the WTU
logo. They had reached out to both candidates and thought the debate was on. It is also not true that private insurance must be posted to hold any and all meetings in school facilities. These are scare tactics are simply being used to inhibit the democratic process.
I am disappointed that in the end Mr. Saunders didn't see it as in his interest to come to the debate. I hope that in the future we can rise above political gamesmanship and make debates a regular feature of WTU elections. The members and the health of our union demand it.
Please don't forget to vote. Vote for the Elizabeth Davis slate. The WTU can be better!
Elizabeth Davis, Candidate for President of the WTU
