Our members join a collection of the most highly-skilled, trained, and dedicated educators that exist anywhere. It is important to know that we always make decisions with the needs of our students as the first consideration. Our members have been hired to do this work as a direct acknowledgment of their desire to be an advocate for children.
The Evergreen Education Association exclusively represents the interests of this great group of professionals. My name is Bill Beville and I serve as president.
Together, our voice is strong as an advocate for children and to make sure we are appropriately compensated and respected for the important work we do. We contend that membership is not about what one “gets” as an individual, but rather what we secure for kids and our profession together as a team to achieve success for our students.

However, the true benefit of being a member of our union is in carrying on the tradition of educators raising their collective voice to demand quality in the education for our children.

These exist because collectively we have allied together in the past and continue to work together today to improve the working conditions of our members, thereby improving the learning conditions of our students.
