I am Teri Reichert and have enjoyed the privilege of being your secretary for the last 3 years. Recently I have been less visible to you while recuperating from a fractured ankle. 16 years as a school Nurse, working in multiple settings such as Elementary, Middle School, Alternative High Schools, special education, PACE and preschool settings has provided me with a global perspective of the needs and issues of you, my fellow peers. As a School Nurse I do have a different view. I understand how health, social and safety issues impact the ability of students to learn and teachers to teach. I would like to continue to work with you as Director at Large. I will build on the momentum of our initial work in our Stand with Students forum, working and stronger partnerships with our parents and community members particularly addressing the safety of you and our students. I will work to ensure that FUSD leadership is provided with accurate facts that will mandate an increase in School Nurses and Social Services on all campuses; Facts that will address issues that allow teachers to work in an environment that students can learn including; decreased class size; adequate and updated tools and facilities; length of school days and the extended mandated teacher‘s education. Having recently utilized our Health Care Services I would like to investigate a less expensive and more complete system of Health Care coverage for all of us. I would appreciate your consideration and vote.
Twenty-seven years in the district, a family history in education, and the raising of my four children, have all been influences in my career as a teacher. My love for the students that we dedicate our lives to each and every year has gotten me to the point that I am right now, seeking a voice in the decisions that are made about the future of our district. As so many others of you who are reading this, I too am concerned every year as changes are made that will affect the way we teach. The voice behind our great population of talented and highly qualified teachers, is none other than our powerful union. Serving as Lead Teacher for the last five years, I have been around many great teachers who have shared with me ideas/concerns/thoughts, for how to work smarter not harder in a field where the pendulum is constantly swinging. To be able to share these ideas and to be a part of the inside workings of our FTA union, where decisions are made that can actually effect change, is where I feel I will be the most beneficial in my career in education .I would love for you to elect me to be one of your Executive Board Directors At Large, so that I can prove myself to be worthy of representing you in the manner that you deserve. Put your faith and trust in me to be your voice. Thank you.
