    TSTA at the NEA conference in Orlando 

    Three members of the Central Campus Texas State Teachers Association student program (TSTA – SP) participated at the National Education Association conference that was held from June 27 to July 1 in Orlando, Florida. The three students, Tessa Themis, Jennifer Scalise and Brittany Earley were accompanied by one of the advisors (Dr. Judy Maima).  The conference which was attended by over 800 participants included pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, college advisors and retirees from all over the United States. In addition to learning about political action, digital tools and how to conduct outreach in our communities, the workshops also raised the awareness of attendees to cultural diversity and cultural biases. The highlight of the experience was participation in the Leaders Empowering Grassroots Advocacy for Communities and Youth (LEGACY) Project, which was designed specifically for students and their families in the area (Osceola County). Activities ranged from writing letters to veterans, painting murals and planting of a community garden. At the end of the day, participants were able to visit the nearby Disney world.

    Pictured at the NEA conference are from left to right; Dr. Judy Maima, Clinton Gill (TSTA student program liason), Jennifer Scalise (President), Tessa Themis, (Vice President), Brittany Earley (Historian).
