  • Culturally Responsive Strategies Training - Saturday, March 18, 2017

    This training is comprised of two three-hour sessions intended to help educators reflect on their practice as culturally responsive professionals to increase effectiveness across differences among their students and families. It is intended for any educator (including office staff, before and after school caregivers, ESP, Cert, etc.) interested in creating a new culture of equity and cultural responsiveness in their school community. This training is currently only open to educators of the WEA-Cascade UniServ Council in the Northshore, Shoreline, and Edmonds school districts.

    Session 1, Culturally Responsive Classroom Communities, will help educators develop their growth as culturally responsive educators, and increase their effectiveness to engage students from diverse backgrounds, social groups, and cultures through meaningful, caring adult relationships. While Session 2, Culturally Responsive Classroom Management), supports educators by developing their culturally responsive management practice. Practitioners need to be cognizant of the characteristics of the students coming to school, appreciate and integrate their culture and family backgrounds, and be able to work with them in culturally appropriate ways. Providing educators support around CRCM practices will only help ensure that all students have access to a positive, consistent, safe, and equitable educational setting.

  • Support the WEA Children's Fund

    Do you know students whose families can't afford to buy a warm coat, a new pair of boots or basic school supplies? The WEA Children's Fund can help!

    The Children's Fund reimburses WEA members who buy items to meet the modest, immediate needs of their students. There's no red tape. Our online form is all that's needed to help your students meet their basic needs! Helping a student has never been easier!

    The goal of the WEA Children's Fund is to help meet the modest and immediate needs of students encountered by WEA members in their daily workplaces. The intent is to ensure that the physical, social and emotional needs of students do not stand in the way of success within the school setting.
