“Teaching Children Civic Responsibility is what we do as educators. Hi this is Joan Deem from Long Island Teachers.org reminding you that this Tuesday, November 3rd is Election Day. Many before us have sacrificed for our right to have a voice in our democracy, so honor them by going to the polls. No matter how you vote, it’s your right so don’t take it for granted. Polls open 6 am to 9 pm. Long Island Teachers.org – Teacher Leaders in the Community.”

As Educators we must make our collective voice heard at the polls!

Even though this year’s elections are for local County, Town and City offices, it is very important for all teachers and their families to get out and vote.  Our neighbors in the community are looking for union educators to come out and vote their values.  If you are unsure who to cast your ballot for, feel free to review the list of candidates that the Nassau and Suffolk Community College Faculty Associations are supporting. Thank you for all the work you do and for reinforcing the civic value of community, democracy and responsibility both in out of the classroom.
