We must do everything within our power to ensure public education remains a powerful ladder to success for every child in Washington.

Eric Pettigrew, Washington State Representative

Teacher leadership should not have to be a choice between working with students and working for students.

Jeff Charbonneau, 2013 Teacher of the Year
