A Message from The President
On behalf of your B.U.T. Executive Committee, welcome back to the business of the most noble profession! We hope that your summer has been restful, rhythmic, and reinvigorating, and that your recent return has been positive and productive.
As the world emerges from its two-year COVID-cocoon, we in education are more vital to society than ever. Throughout the pandemic, we stood strong, delivering what had to be delivered with integrity, grace, and considerable artistic flair.
We in education know the importance of self-knowledge; and we, in fact, are agents of self-actualization. There is, of course, nothing more powerful than knowing yourself; and that makes the art of teaching a vital part of any prosperous society.
This Union values our resident artists – knowing the value of each and every one of you. The testament to your stature lies in the empirical fact that each and every one of you have contributed to the creation of several masterpieces.
Productive, law-abiding, self-aware citizens do not simply occur – we influence them in a way that allows them to become who they will. We teach – we lead – we create – and we perpetuate this community.
Take away teachers, and all art fades. Take away teachers, and all hope dries up. Take away teachers, and things fall apart. This is why we take our duty to represent you so seriously; we know what you are, and we will continue to speak truth to power!
As always, this Union will stand for you! We stand at the gate, ready to go to battle for our workers, and we are honored to be here at the dawn of another school year.
