WASHINGTON, D.C. The NEA is 3.2 million members strong and is an advocate for education professionals. We have been donating books to their members via an offer on the NEA website since 2008. Approximately 4,000 educators have received books and by casting such a wide net of inspiration we are igniting positive changes in teaching strategies in classrooms throughout the country.
One example of the impact this alliance is wielding is the program launched by Gerry Padgett, a Library Media Specialist at the Wynnebrook Elementary School in West Palm Beach, FL, who learned about The Art of Learning through the NEA and is using books we provided to fuel discussion about teaching and learning among his colleagues.
