Teachers and principals across the country are surprising students, parents and their communities with innovative practices and thoughtful solutions to the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis. In the face of this collective trauma, educators are standing up to the disruptions and navigating this new terrain. They are taking care of themselves and their families while maintaining connections with students and colleagues.

Share your story

Even though we are not at school supporting Missouri students, members continue to help every day during this crisis. MNEA wants to share your stories as we struggle through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are hearing about members who are continuing to care for their students by

  • volunteering at school district Grab & Go meal distribution centers and food drives
  • providing child care for essential medical staff
  • shopping for the elderly so they don’t have to leave the safety of their homes

Your stories help show that educators don’t stop caring. Please send your stories with pictures to MNEA at coronavirus@mnea.org, so we can share them. You can post to social media, making sure you tag @MissouriNEA and use the hashtags  #MNEAheroes and  #MNEAprotects.
