Putting the "T" Back in PTA
Get Administrators On Board
Offer Incentives- Everyone Loves Incentives
•At the beginning of the year, host a teacher breakfast/lunch with membership information.
•Give a reward for 100 percent membership like a teacher’s luncheon or brunch.
•Hold "member only" events.
•Give teacher grants and reimbursements.
•Use a bulletin board to post teacher’s names as they join.
•Have grade level or teacher teams or staff competitions.
“In large part, we are teachers precisely because we remember what it was like to be a student. Someone inspired us. Someone influenced us. Or someone hurt us. And we’ve channeled that joy (or pain) into our own unique philosophies on life and learning and we’re always looking for an opportunity to share them—with each other, our students, parents, or in our communities.”
― Tucker Elliot
Whadaya Want From Me?
Who Needs the "T"?
Who Needs Them?
Happy Teachers = Happy Students
Teachers are one of this country’s greatest resources and it is time for teachers to find their own niche in the educational world and be happy and fulfilled in their jobs. Teachers have a powerful impact on the students that they interact with on a daily basis.
The Administrators Should:
Become familiar with the basic policies and purposes of the PTA.
Encourage teachers, staff members, parents, and students to join and participate with the PTA.
Invite teachers and staff members to contribute ideas for programs and projects.
Assist the PTA in reaching out to community and local business leaders as potential members for coalition building and as resources.
Advise the PTA on school district policies regarding classroom visitation, field trips, class parties, parent participation, directory information, etc.
Attend meetings and events of the PTA.
An administrator's active support, cooperation, and inspiration are vital to the success of a PTA.
Presented by Trish Picone, Ed.S., NBCT
Teachers want to know what is expected of them.
Decide what kind of support you want from the teachers.
They like incentives and positive attention.
They dislike too many changes at once.
WORD UP- Get the Word Out
Let the teachers know that you want them to join.
They need to know why it is important for them to join.
They need to know what they will get out of the membership.
Hold a gathering where teachers are invited and be present with membership forms.
Flyers are an inexpensive way to advertise. Make copies and put them in teachers' boxes. Create signs and put them in teacher areas to remind teachers to join.
Leave notes or invitations on teachers' desks.
Thanks for Your Attention
Parents and Teachers need to work together to make the school a better place for all.
E-mails are an easy and
inexpensive way to notify
and remind teachers that
you want them to join.
