Hi, I’m Frank and I am the new Executive Director of New Mexico Association of Classroom Teachers(NMACT). NMACT is the oldest Teacher Organization in the State and our primary purpose is to provide low cost Educator Professional Liability Insurance. Our costs have remained low because we have no paid staff and minimal overhead expenses. To find out more about us please visit our website at NMACT.com.
NMACT is a non-partisan, non-political organization. We are only concerned about education issues in the State of New Mexico. Our leadership also provides representation to our members in workplace conflicts and legal assistance when needed.
We also work very closely with State Legislators and the staff of the Legislative Education Study Committee to insure that educators concerns are heard. As you well know public education in New Mexico is going through a period of dynamic changes. Teachers are trying to deal with A-F, Common Core, the new State Assessment, new Teacher Evaluation System and End of Course Exams. That I fear is just the “tip of the iceberg”, who knows what the 2013-2014 school year will bring.
So please New Mexico Educators, let us know what your thoughts are and we will keep you informed about education issues in the State. Together we can survive these trying times and emerge stronger in the end. Oh, NMACT’s motto is “Teachers Helping Teachers” Thanks!.
